Drag star Courtney Act took fans on a journey of STI testing after discovering that they spent the night with a guy who is HIV-positive. “Last week I had unprotected sex with somebody who I found out was HIV positive, which, on my behalf, wasn’t a smart decision.” I should have taken more precautions and used a condom or other precautions like PrEP,” the performer confessed in December.
Following the discovery, she released another video which follows her journey of having a full STI test and getting the results. Since the close encounter the star shared that she had started taking the HIV prevention drug PrEP, which reduces the chance of infection when exposed to the virus. She uploaded a short video that followed her on her journey of discovering whether or not she had any disease. The artist caught a sexually transmitted disease, but it is treatable. And HIV tests are fortunately negative. But this story is a good lesson for everyone – take care about your health and avoid having unprotected sex with unreliable people.
