Eurovision victor Conchita Wurst reveals she is HIV positive

She stated within the publish in her native German: "I've been hiv-positive for a few years. that is really irrelevant to the general public, however an ex-boyfriend threatens me to go public with this non-public info, and I can't give anybody the precise to frighten me and affect my life sooner or later".

Eurovision song contest victor Conchita Wurst has revealed that she is HIV positive and has been receiving regular treatment for "several years".

Wurst wrote: "I have been HIV-positive for many years".

" I hope to show guts and take the following step contrary to the stigmatization of people with H.I.V.", he also added.

Wurst said that she had been receiving medical treatment since her diagnosis and that it had been suppressed to undetectable levels, so it could not be transmitted.

"I did not want to go public with it for a couple of reasons, two of which I will mention here: the most important one was my family, who have known and supported me unconditionally since day one".

From the statement on Instagram, " Mr. Neuwirth said he had been undergoing therapy for H.I.V.to get a lot of years, also his virus levels were imperceptible.

HIV campaigners have slammed her ex-partner's actions, but praised Wurst for the "dignity" with which she has dealt with the situation.

Wurst, whose real name is Tom Neuwith, won the Eurovision competition in 2014 with a song titled "Rise of the Phoenix".

Ian Inexperienced, chief govt of the Terrence Higgins Trust, which campaigns on and offers companies regarding HIV, stated: "The choice to speak brazenly about your HIV standing needs to be a private one and never taken away or ever, ever used as a risk".

"Despite all the medical advances we've made in the fight against HIV, in treatment and in testing, Conchita's Instagram post highlights how much more we have to do to tackle the abhorrent stigma which still surrounds the virus". H.I.V. might be treated with medication that lessen the viral load into a level where the immune system is healthy and the individual can not pass onto the virus.

"Threatening to disclose somebody's HIV standing, underneath any circumstances, is exclusively incorrect".
