|Is this new HIV prevention video too graphic?|

I came across this new public service announcement from New York's Gay Men's Health Crisis via a headline on the Drudge Report: "New Graphic PSA Causes Uproar in NYC."
I didn't think it was that bad, minus one truly horrific shot of anal cancer (see video below).
The PSA's message is a sound word of warning to those who think HIV is purely a manageable disease. While treatments have vastly improved since HIV was considered an ultimately fatal diagnosis, there are a slew of other health issues HIV-positive people may encounter.
Even beyond that, unprotected sex also ups the chances of contracting sexually transmitted diseases that may have their own consequences beyond first diagnosis.
I think it's a reasonable wake-up call.
Do you think the content is too graphic to convey an appropriate message directed at gay men?
