I came across this new public service announcement from New York's Gay Men's Health Crisis via a headline on the Drudge Report: "New Graphic PSA Causes Uproar in NYC."

I didn't think it was that bad, minus one truly horrific shot of anal cancer (see video below).

The PSA's message is a sound word of warning to those who think HIV is purely a manageable disease. While treatments have vastly improved since HIV was considered an ultimately fatal diagnosis, there are a slew of other health issues HIV-positive people may encounter.

Is this new HIV prevention video too graphic?

Even beyond that, unprotected sex also ups the chances of contracting sexually transmitted diseases that may have their own consequences beyond first diagnosis.

I think it’s a reasonable wake-up call.

Do you think the content is too graphic to convey an appropriate message directed at gay men?
