Learning that you are HIV-positive is no longer a death sentence for most people in the United States. But the progress against HIV-AIDS has largely bypassed one group of Americans – gay and bisexual men who are black. Why has this happened? And why haven’t we heard more about it?

Bob asks these questions of his guest, Linda Villarosa, author of a powerful cover story for The New York Times Sunday Magazine titled, “America’s Hidden H.I.V. Epidemic.” Villarosa is an assistant professor and director of the journalism program at The City College of New York/CUNY.
