Miami DC ATL Tops 4 HIV/AIDS among Gays

In a report released last week by the locally based Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, Atlanta comes in eighth among the nation’s metro areas in its ratio of HIV infections to overall population. Gay and bisexual men remain the largest risk group.

To make matters grimmer, men who have sex with men, which the CDC (photo) dubs “MSM,” are now the report’s only high-risk group for whom infection rates continue to rise unabated, especially among African Americans and young adults aged 18-24.

“This is the only risk group in the U.S. in which the annual number of new HIV infections is increasing,” states the latest Incidence Report based on the CDC’s National HIV/AIDS Behavorial Surveillance System. “There is an urgent need to expand access to proven HIV prevention interventions for gay and bisexual men, as well as to develop new approaches to fight HIV in this population.”

While new infections have declined among both heterosexuals and injection drug users, the annual number of new HIV infections among MSM has been steadily increasing since the early 1990s, according to the report.

MSM accounts for nearly half of the more than one million people living with HIV in the United States. While the CDC estimates that MSM account for just 4 percent of the U.S. male population aged 13 and older, the rate of new HIV diagnoses among MSM in the U.S. is more than 44 times that of other men.

Among all of those who were infected, about half were unaware of their HIV status. Results were particularly alarming for black MSM and young MSM. More than two-thirds of infected black MSM and nearly 80 percent of infected MSM aged 18–24 were unaware that they were infected.


Miami tops the list of the other most affected cities in the report, which looks every 18 months at the most recently available data. The latest report derives its findings on information compiled in 2008. Baton Rouge, La., and New Orleans rank second and third, respectively. Baltimore and Jacksonville, Fla., round out the top five.

The rest of the 10 cities with the highest infection rates, in order are Washington, D.C.; Columbia, S.C.; Atlanta, San Juan, P.R.; and New York City.

Funny Story: MBB Fashion Show Starring Mr. Bird Crap


From the Desk of King in Miami
Follow me on Twitter for the Latest in South Florida Haps
---------------------------------------------------------
*The MBB FASHION SHOW was awesome, but here is a funny story about something that happened during the show.*
It seems every time I go to some weekend Pride event something crazy happens. Whether it be in New York, with a man jumping in front on my subway train or being stalked by an online acquaintance during my last Atlanta trip. This trip was no different. I had the privilege to sit next to this darling young lady visiting from Atlanta. She was truly the life of the fashion show with her off-the-cuff comments, that had our whole section laughing during the show. For instance, during the show it was very obvious that some of our fabulous male models may have been gay from the settle twist in their walk. It was in no way obvious, but you know I had my gaydar up and you just knew, who was and who was not. I think Ms. Atlanta must have been a gay man in a previous life, because she was clocking everyone's "tee" as well. We all agreed "the twist" was not a good thing when modeling for the general public at a men's fashion show. So when a "suspect" model would twist by, she would say out loud, sarcastically "PULL IT BACK", suggesting the model get rid of the slight twist in their walk. The surrounding people would just die in laughter. It was kind of rude, but still hilarious. You couldn't do anything but laugh. Even the straight people around us, knew what we were referring too. But that was just the start of the evening.

Before the show, there were a few seats left in a standing room only show, so we were asked to have a seat in the VIP section. Me, Ms. Atlanta, and another guy from South Carolina, sat in the back row. We had been seated for a little bit of time, and were enjoying the show, when I heard Ms. Atlanta say, EEEWWWHHHH! I looked down the row at her and Mr. South Carolina, and on his arm was a long, thick clump of BIRD CRAP! It was NASTY! I think the bird must have had diarrhea or something because it was runny and all. Luckily we all had beach towels, so he just wiped it off. No big deal. Meanwhile, the whole row was looking up to try to see if there was a bird above us. No Bird. Hmmmm. The whole time Ms. Atlanta was saying,"I do not want any bird crap on me. If I get any bird crap on me, it's going to be over and there will be problem." And she kept saying it, over and over and over. I giggled and continued to watch the show. About 15 minutes later, I hear Ms. Atlanta, say EEEWWWHHH! I look at her, she looks at me then, I look down at my shoulder. We had been hit again, but this time Mr. Bird Crap had gotten me....right on the shoulder. I said, "WTF!" and looked up again. No Bird to be found. Again, Ms. Atlanta, said, "If I get bird crap on me, so help me God." I wiped if off with beach towel and laughed. The whole time, Ms. Atlanta and I, had been laughing; bumping and leaning into each other. We both were having a grand ole time, when I look down and notice something. I look over at her shoulder, and guess what...she had been hit by.... Mr. Bird Crap. I should have been a friend and told her, but I was afraid she would have jumped in the pool during the show trying to get it off. So, we were all hit by Mr. Bird Crap. Only two of us knew it though. *TRUE STORY*

Day Two- MBB South Beach Men's Fashion Show

Follow me on Twitter for the Latest in South Florida Haps
---------------------------------------------------------
Yes, the Miami Beach Bruthas Fashion Show was simply amazing. After hanging out at Twist for the MBB Happy Hour, I headed poolside at the Catalina Host Hotel for the MBB South Beach Mens' Fashion show, that was not to be missed. Besides getting some GREAT goodies including a giant-size beach towel, the models and show was great. I attended the MBB Fashion Show last year at Yuca on Lincoln Road, and MBB topped last year's show. A poolside runway was a great idea and so fitting for Miami even though it was a little muggy outside. It's Miami, so what can you expect. Stunning models, great audience, and hottest fashions, was a formula for a great event. I am already looking forward to the MBB Fashion Show in 2011. I have a funny story to tell you guys about something that happened during the show. Look out for the story "MBB Fashion Show Starring Bird Crap".

Miami Beach Bruthaz In FULL EFFECT on South Beach


From the Desk of King in Miami
Follow me on Twitter for the Latest in South Florida Haps
------------------------------------------------------
Miami Beach Bruthaz (www.miamibeachbruthaz.com) is in full effect on South Beach. This annual celebration started Thursday and runs thru tomorrow. This 5-years' strong, VIP-style event, is very much over the top, from the two host hotels, Riveria and the Catalina to the jam-packed parties and social events. I had the chance to experience several events so far; the first being the opening night party at Bar 721, formerly known as the Laundry Bar. I had a great time partying with all the out of towners and locals, with DJ Galvin T on the wheels of steel. $13 Long ice teas?? You might think that sounds expensive, but the drink was in a flute-type glass, probably as long as my forearm. I had three of them, and needless to say, I was praying to the porcelain gods, later that night. MBB needs to put a warning label on their fliers and website; "Too much partying at MBB can be harmful to your health!" LOL. More pics and videos to come. Sobe Men's Fashion Show Up next....

Lebron James is coming to MIAMI



Well with an 1 hour long ESPN special which aired at 9pm last night Lebron James has finally decided to come to the Miami Heat and hopefully bring Miami another championship which critics is now dubbing the super team with the addition of Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade deciding to stay in Miami. i hope Miami can do it and shut the naysayers up because if not this will be the biggest let down in NBA history. I feel if Boston could do it with Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce then they can too with a good team of role players they will be fine.
