‘Queer Eye’s’ Jonathan Van Ness Reveals He Is HIV+, That Drug Addiction Led Him to Sell Sex Online
Jonathan Van Ness, the TV personality and grooming expert on Netflix’s “Queer Eye,” opened up about his HIV-positive diagnosis in an interview with the New York Times on Saturday.

“When ‘Queer Eye’ came out, it was really difficult because I was like, ‘Do I want to talk about my status?,'” he told the Times. “And then I was like, ‘The Trump administration has done everything they can do to have the stigmatization of the L.G.B.T. community thrive around me.’ … I do feel the need to talk about this.”

The conversation comes in advance of the Sept. 24 release of Van Ness’ memoir, “Over the Top,” which he said will reveal more insight into “the effervescent, gregarious majestic center-part-blow-dry cotton-candy figure-skating queen” that viewers have come to know him as from “Queer Eye.”
