Every performer reading this please take note. Instead of this insanely stupid power play that the FSC always does in these situations I want you all to make a promise to your fellow performers right now. If you test positive for HIV, just step up and say so. Just say hey guys I just wanted everyone to know that I tested positive for HIV today, hopefully it is a false positive but I want you all to hear it from me because that is where you should hear it. You all have my word that I will get the word out immediately as I find out anything.
Just once is all it would take, then everyone would handle it that way and this stupid cat and mouse game that the FSC plays with you would be over and this situation would be handled as it should be.
We are adults here and most are responsible and smart enough to know that this would go a very long way to making you look grown up and responsible to the rest of the world.
The false positives arent going to harm you and it isnt fair to your fellow performers to have The FSC release one of these letters and have all the other performers lose sleep wondering if they have been exposed. If you were in their shoes I expect you would feel the same way.
Lets show the FSC and AHF and all the rest of the people who assign no value to your life other than information that they can manipulate to achieve their agendas that you have the control and that you will do the right thing on your own terms.
You all have my word that if it is me, ever, in that situation that is how I will do it. I am not a coward, you will hear it from me should that ever be the case…God forbid.
I pretty much know who it is, I am holding off until tomorrow when the third test results (second draw) are back.
meantime y’all think about this, you all know thats the right way to handle it. And if you put it out through me or anyone else I will back you 100% for doing the right thing.
