30 years.... On June 5, 1981, the first official cases of HIV/AIDS were reported in the United States among gay men in Los Angeles. The disease was around long before that. It’s just that no one knew what it was or what to call it. We don't hear as much about it as we once did, but it has not gone away.
Spend a few minutes reading this TIMELINE OF AIDS from AIDS.gov.
