“Pose” actor Billy Porter who plays the HIV-positive character Pray Tell in the FX series is covering The Hollywood Reporter and sharing that he’s been quietly living with HIV since 2007. The 51-year-old revealed that he’s been silent on his diagnosis because of “shame” and “embarrassment” in particular when it came to his mother.

While sitting alongside his friend/ frequent collaborator Ryan Murphy who joined him for moral support, Porter told The Hollywood Reporter;

 

Billy Porter reveals he’s been living with HIV: “I was trying to have a life & a career, and I wasn’t certain I could if the wrong people knew. It would just be another way for people to discriminate against me in an already discriminatory profession”  Porter opened up about his HIV-positive status for the first time since being diagnosed fourteen years ago: “There’s no more stigma—let’s be done with that.”
