Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst reveals HIV diagnosis after ex blackmails her

Eurovision diva Conchita Wurst reveals she is HIV-positive

"I will not give anyone the right to frighten me and influence my life in the future", she wrote, adding that she had initially made a decision to keep her status private in order to spare her family - who she revealed had supported her "unconditionally". The singer revealed she has HIV on Instagram.

In the statement on Instagram, Mr. Neuwirth said he had been receiving treatment for H.I.V. for many years, and that his virus levels were now undetectable.

"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".

"I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me, threatening the health of so many others, which couldn't be further from the truth".

Want more celebrity, entertainment and lifestyle news? As a result, she is below the detection limit of the virus and is unable to pass it on.

"Secondly, it is an information that I believe is mainly relevant to those people with whom sexual contact is an option". Thus, she is not able to transmit the virus. HIV is heavily stigmatized, as are HIV-positive people.

As HIV is highly virulent, many campaigns and prevention treatments have been developed for many years in an attempt to reduce the statistics of transmissions.


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

Therefore, it can be possible for an infected person to maintain a sexual relationship without transmitting the virus, as there would be a negligible amount of HIV present in the seminal fluid or vaginal secretions.

However, the singer added: "Coming out is better than being outed by third party".

"I hope to show courage and take another step against the stigmatization of people with H.I.V.", he added.

Since sharing the news, Conchita has been flooded with messages of support from fans on social media.

Her Instagram followers have been nothing else than supportive, claiming they are proud of her for being so fearless and stepping up to those who want to harm by judging someone for his or her condition.

Wolfgang Wilhelm, president of AIDS Hilfe Wien, an organization in Vienna that targets for individuals with H.I.V. and AIDS, explained, "The revival of Conchita has been due by blackmailing exhibits just how much men and women however fear stigma and discrimination".
