AKIPRESS.COM - Eurovision winner Conchita has told fans that she is HIV-positive, and has been in regular treatment for “several years”.

The 29-year-old Austrian drag performer made a public statement on Instagram in response to an ex-boyfriend allegedly threatening to reveal the information, The Guardian reported.

“I have been HIV-positive for several years,” Conchita wrote (translated from German). “That is actually irrelevant to the public, but an ex-boyfriend threatened to reveal this private information. In the future, I don’t want to give anyone the right to cause me pain and influence my life in that way.”
