Is there a subject to debate?
AIDS has come from Africa, gay men has the highest rate for spreading it.
These are facts. No false rhetoric may change it.

HIV is spread heterosexually in Africa, partly due to the lack of circumcision which increases female to male transmission, and partly due to the changes of these societies with colonization. (e.g. men work in cities or mines but can't bring wives with them).

If you want the dirty details why, just look up a photo for “Balanitis”...

ironically, in South China and Iran, HIV is spread via IV drug injection, and in Eastern Europe/Russia via blood transfusions and dirty needles.

It is thought that French speaking Haitians ho had worked in the Congo brought it back to Haiti, and the sex tourism spread it from there. Cuba did not have the problem, because their soldiers in Angola who tested positive were quarantined for awhile.
