According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) of all races remain the population most severely affected by HIV. MSM account for more than half (61%) of all new HIV infections in the U.S. each year, as well as nearly half (48%) of people living with HIV.  While CDC estimates that MSM account for just 4% of the US male population aged 13 and older, the rate of new HIV diagnoses among MSM in the US is more than 44 times that of other men and more than 40 times that of women.      Between 2006 and 2009, the number of new infections that occurred each year increased among young MSM – driven by an alarming 48% increase among young, black MSM 13 to 29 years old. MSM is the only risk group in the U.S. in which new HIV infections have been increasing since the early 1990s.  According to the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, MSM and people of color continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV.  Of all males newly diagnosed with HIV, 44% were black or Hispanic MSM. In 2009, for the first time, diagnoses among MSM ages 13-29 surpassed diagnoses among MSM ages 30 years and older. New HIV diagnoses among MSM ages 20-29 have increased since 2006. Young MSM account for a larger proportion of new HIV diagnoses among MSM of color than among white MSM.
