Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness has something he wants the world to know: He is HIV-Positive.
The 32-year-old fan-favorite Netflix star revealed his diagnosis in his new memoir, Over the Top, set for release on Sept. 24, The New York Times reported on Saturday.
"That day was just as devastating as you would think it would be," he writes in the book.
"When Queer Eye came out, it was really difficult because I was like, 'Do I want to talk about my status?,'" he told the newspaper. "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."
Van Ness said he is healthy and describes himself as an out-and-proud "member of the beautiful HIV-positive community."
