“Age-specific mortality was significantly higher for gay and bisexual men than all men aged 30-44. Life expectancy at age 20 for gay and bisexual men ranged from 34.0 years to 46.3 years for the 3% and 9% scenarios respectively. These were all lower than the 54.3 year life expectancy at age 20 for all men. The probability of living from age 20 to 65 years for gay and bisexual men ranged from 32% for the 3% scenario, to 59% for the 9% scenario. These figures were considerably lower than for all men where the probability of living from 20 to 65 was 78%.”
Modelling the impact of HIV disease on mortality in gay and bisexual men, R.S. Hogg, S.A. Strathdee, K.J. Craib, M.V. O’Shaughnessy, J.S. Montaner, and M.T. Schechter (British Columbia Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, St Paul’s Hospital, Vancouver, Canada); International Journal of Epidemiology, 1997, Vol. 26, pp. 657-661
“In our paper, we demonstrated that in a major Canadian centre, life expectancy at age 20 years for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 21 years less than for all men. If the same pattern of mortality continued, we estimated that nearly half of gay and bisexual men currently aged 20 years would not reach their 65th birthday.”
Gay life expectancy revisited, R.S. Hogg, S.A. Strathdee, K.J. Craib, M.V. O’Shaughnessy, J. Montaner, and M.T. Schechter, International Journal of Epidemiology, 2001, Vol. 30, p. 1499
Tell that to purveyors of ladylike morality bemoaning the social costs of excess gasoline consumption, whilst foisting the social costs of sexual extravagance on society at large.
