As a young gay man in my early 20s witnessing the devastation of the AIDS epidemic in my community, I noted to a friend one night, "If gay men were allowed to get married, this disease would go away." At the time, this statement was one that resonated with me, although I could not effectively articulate why I was convinced of the proposition. In fact, only recently have I come to truly understand the truth and power of my words, and how the AIDS crisis and the other numerous health disparities experienced by gay men(1) may, in fact, be ameliorated or possibly eliminated through the enactment of marriage equality.
