The AIDS virus was spread by gay males

March 04, 2004

Dear Editor:

David Hall's letter to the editor Tuesday criticizing Jeff Hamlin's letter and stating AIDS infects all genders and ages of people opens up a real can of worms.

Perhaps he should read about how the AIDS virus was brought from Europe to America by a gay, infected male airline steward, sharing the virus with gay males in New York and then on to San Francisco, where it spread rapidly in gay bath houses.

Public health statistics show that the rate of HIV-AIDS infection in gay males far exceeds any other group of people per capita.


Women receive the infection from bisexual infected men and pass it on to their babies.

The second-highest rates are in IV drug users who share needles with infected people.

These are facts, not opinions.
