Gay men remain the group primarily affected by the AIDS epidemic in most industrialized countries. Although governments and AIDS organizations increasingly stress the dangers of a heterosexual HIV epidemic, it is gay men who are still bearing the brunt of the crisis.
Safety in Numbers provides a comprehensive overview of safer sex education for gay men. Edward King offers a critical analysis of the systematic downplaying of the involvement of gay men in the HIV epidemic and demonstrates conclusively how those at greatest risk form HIV have become the most neglected. By looking back over the successes of groups such as Gay Men’s Health Crisis and ACT UP Safety in Numbers provides an accessible and essential guide to meeting current and future needs in the fight against AIDS.
