"But I'm grateful that already she is seizing the opportunity to dispel ignorance & fear by affirming that HIV undetectable = untransmittable", Hodson added.

Conchita, a gay rights activist since the beginning of her career, showed the world she was an active and influential person, and she kept the same attitude when addressing the recent events.

M - Eurovision victor Conchita has told fans that she is HIV-positive, and has been in regular treatment for "several years".

"[My status] is actually irrelevant to the public, but an ex-boyfriend is threatening to go public with this private information, and I will not give anyone the right to frighten me or affect my life", she wrote.

The 2014 Eurovision victor went on to say that the virus was no longer detectable in her blood and was not at risk of being passed on to anyone else.

Aids charity The Terrence Higgins Trust expressed dismay that Wurst had been obliged to reveal her diagnosis.

"Since I received the diagnosis, I have received medical treatment and for many years I've been under the detection limit, so am not able to pass on the virus".

"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".

It is maintained at this level by regular medication and takes around six months to achieve after being initially diagnosed with the virus.

Conchita explained that she thought the coming out for herself was better than being out by a third party.

As scary as the term HIV can be, there are some facts that most people are not aware of when it comes to understanding the causes, consequences, and transmission of the disease.
