Some new relevant research:
Sackoff, J. E., D. B. Hanna, et al. (2006). "Causes of Death among Persons with AIDS in the Era of Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy: New York City." Annals of Internal Medicine 145(6): 397-406.
“Non–HIV-related causes of death account for one fourth of all deaths of persons with AIDS.”Good news there, it seems. But this is the one that struck me as really odd:
Pathela, P., A. Hajat, et al. (2006). "Discordance between Sexual Behavior and Self-Reported Sexual Identity: A Population-Based Survey of New York City Men." Annals of Internal Medicine 145(6): 416-425.
"Of New York City men reporting a sexual identity [gay or straight], 12% reported sex with other men."This is from a sample of 4193 men. I wish I had found this while at work, as I won’t be able to see the full text until tomorrow, but a news report on the research, here, says:
"Many New York City men who have sex with men do not identify as gay."
“10 percent of men interviewed in New York who identified themselves as heterosexual reported having sex with at least one man during the previous year.”And
“70 percent of the men [I'd assume of that 10%?] who had sex with other men were married [to women?].”Wow. Something seems off there, maybe the reporter’s mistake? I’ll have to read the study tomorrow.
Perhaps this just shows how unreliable interviews are, but even if it’s half true… You gays married to women are not that alone.
