The Longevity of Homosexuals: Before and after the AIDS Epidemic.
Cameron, Paul; And Others
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v29 n3 p249-72 1994
Obituaries spanning 13 years, from U.S. homosexual journals and conventional newspapers, were examined. For the homosexual and lesbian deaths, much lower median death ages than U.S. averages were recorded (whether or not AIDS was involved), with higher rates of accidental death, suicide, and murder. This pattern of early death calls the healthfulness of homosexuality into question. (CC)
