Billy Porter reveals he is HIV-positive

Billy Porter is breaking his silence. Appearing on the new cover of The Hollywood Reporter, the 51-year-old “Pose” star reveals his HIV-positive diagnosis 14 years ago. The actor explains that publicly revealing he is HIV-positive is part of his journey toward feeling even freer as a human being, saying, “I’m the healthiest I’ve been in my entire life. So it’s time to let all that go and tell a different story. There’s no more stigma — let’s be done with that. It’s time. I’ve been living it and being in the shame of it for long enough.”
