Rapper Mykki Blanco Comes Out As Being HIV Positive

Poetic rapper who goes by the name Mykki Blanco has decided to come out and open up to the world about his huge secret he’s been harboring for quite some time. The transgender/multigender artist revealed this past Saturday that he’s been living with the HIV disease since 2011. “I’ve been HIV Positive since 2011, my entire career,” he wrote via his Facebook page. “F— stigma and hiding in the dark, this is my real life.” He went on to write, “I’m healthy I’ve toured the world 3 times but ive been living in the dark, its time to actually be as punk as i say I am. I just cant be an image living in fear having people call me brave and it being a lie.” He was praised by his fans with messages telling him how brave and heroic he is for being able to admit being HIV positive to everyone. I could imagine how difficult something so personal can be to admit to the world, but it is a very honorable thing to do. Moral of the story: Fellas– WRAP IT UP!

(Photos) Lil Wayne Responds To HIV Rumors

The internet is a crazy place. I’m not sure what’s more annoying – satire sites or the dummies that don’t realize they’re satire and proceed to share the stories like they’re “news.” Such was the case yesterday afternoon, when known satire site The Daily Leak posted an article about Lil Wayne being diagnosed with HIV. (Which, even though it’s “satire” is still REALLY not cool…) “Lil’ Wayne Of Y.M.C.M.B Came Out Publicly Today And Revealed That He Has Contracted H.I.V.,” the article read. “Our Sources Tell Us That Later On This Week He Is Going To Make A Formal Annoucement To The Media & Fans, However He Did Give Positive Words Of Advice, ‘Sometimes you get caught up with the strippers and groupies…Just Wear protection.’ #Prayforweezy.” How anyone actually took that as a real story is BEYOND me, but nonetheless, the #PrayForWeezy trending topic grew so large, Tune eventually felt the need to address it. He’s since deleted the tweet, though. Check it out in the gallery!
