But a survey released on Monday by the Broward County Health Department blasted such assumptions by showing results similar to a study in Miami Beach. In actual testing, 25 percent in the earlier study turned out HIV-positive, suggesting that the Broward number is probably higher, too. What’s more, gay men in Broward County reported more high-risk sex and drug use than survey planners had expected, especially among the young.
That means Broward County has not escaped a national trend in which unsafe sex is on the rebound. Seeing the success of a three-drug cocktail for treating AIDS, some gay men have been defying safe-sex practices or no longer consider them necessary, said George Castrataro, who headed the survey for the health department. Unprotected sex, known as “bare backing,” has become more prevalent and has been touted at online computer sites catering to gay men, said Dilia Loe, director of the Gay and Lesbian Community Center in Oakland Park.
At the same time, anti-AIDS groups have turned their attention away from the gay community, believing the battle to be won, Castrataro said. Even though half of AIDS cases are gay men, only 5 percent of prevention dollars are aimed at them, he said. The questionnaire was done last year at randomly chosen bars, concerts, events and locations popular among gay men, from a skating rink near Dania beach to the shore in Pompano Beach.
Some HIV-positive men who were treated for other sexually transmitted diseases said they did not always tell their partners they had the virus.
