Popular Nigerian gay rights activist, Bisi Alimi, has taken to social media to reveal that he has been diagnosed with HIV for 16 years.

To celebrate world AIDS day, Bisi Alimi took to his Instagram page to share his story and encouraged people with the virus that its not a death sentence

He further revealed that the first 4 years after he tested positive to the virus was tough, because of the stigma and discrimination he got from people.

According to his Instagram post, Bisi wrote:

“On this world AIDS day I want to share this again. It’s has been 16yrs I tested positive for HIV. 16yrs I have been living with the virus. The first 4yrs was hard and tough for me, not because of the virus, but because of the stigma and the discrimination and shame.

“I look back at those 16yrs and where I am today and there is no better way to say this; the resilience and support and love of the people that matter has kept me alive, kept loving and kept me inspired.

“If you are living with HIV, please know that it is no more a death sentence and you can actually live positively with HIV.

“Finally, I hope you will acknowledge and appreciate that you are all you have and this life is a gift and what others say or think about you is not your business, but theirs. Happy World AIDS Day”.
