17% of Chicago Gay Men are HIV-positive

From the Chicago Daily Observer:

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:

About 17 percent of gay men in Chicago are HIV-positive — and half of them don’t know it.

That’s according to authoritative new estimates from the Chicago Public Health Department.

And black men who have sex with men have double the HIV infection rates of white and Hispanic men, even though they don’t appear to engage in riskier behavior, Chicago health officials said Friday.
