Nigerian gay activist, Bisi Alimi has shared some words of advice as he marks 15 years of being diagnosed with HIV.
The gay rights activist said he was diagnosed 15 years ago but began taking medications 10 years ago and he’s been living a healthy life. He went on to advise followers to take a test and begin medication if it comes out positive.

I can go on and say much more, like appealing you to please donate to the work of Bisi Alimi Foundation, and letting you know;
1- HIV knows no sexuality; it doesn’t care if you are;
Gay, straight, male, female, Trans, tall, short, white, black, Asian; if you are exposed, there are chances you will get infected.
2- Like taking a test is the best way to know and adhering to your medication is the best way to stop the virus.
3- That U actually equals U, but that’s if you know, on treatment and in good health.
4- That you can live a long healthy life with HIV.
5- That holy water, anointing oil and other falsehood you have been sold won’t cure HIV
6- That there is no cure yet, but it is on its way.
7- I love you
8- That thank you to my husband Anthony Davis for being the most amazing man.
9- That please donate to Bisi Alimi Foundation.
