Eurovision Star Conchita Wurst: “I’ve Been HIV Positive for Many Years.”

Austrian drag icon Conchita Wurst has opened up about living HIV. This is a brave move and an important decision for anyone that’s HIV-positive to make. Unfortunately, Conchita was forced out by someone trying to blackmail her.

Conchita, boy-name Tom Neuwirth, spoke about their HIV status in a German-language Insta post. It was an emotional revelation.

“I have been HIV-positive for many years. This is actually irrelevant to the public, but an ex-boyfriend has threatened to go public with this private information, and I will not give anyone the right to frighten me and influence my life in the future.”— Conchita Wurst
