Ongina has become a famous reality star ever since her presence in RuPaul’s Drag Race season. RuPaul’s single, “Lady Boy,” has been inspired by Ongina. She loves to collect headpieces and hats. Likewise, her fan following is great, and they love who she is. The reality celeb is known for her positive attitude towards life, and now the drag queen is making headlines with the podcast Poz Vibe. So, tune in to know what the queen had to say.
RuPaul’s Drag Race: Ongina Opens Up About HIV On Poz Vibe!
Ongina’s beauty and fashion sense are admirable. She has garnered attention with the title of a bald drag queen. But hair or not, Ongina always makes it her way. It is not easy to pull off a dramatic look, but the celeb does it with ease. Unfortunately, the reality star was diagonised with HIV. Though the news shattered her, she is positive enough to embrace it. Likewise, Ongina is the first drag queen to come out as HIV positive on screen. Therefore, since then, RuPaul’s Drag Race star has been actively spreading awareness about it. It is difficult to live with such a disease in the glamorous world. Yet, Ong does it with style.
Not only that, the reality star is using her platform to have an open talk about virus testing and prevention, trans rights, and LGBTQ+ rights. She has also been the host of the online web show HIV and me. And now, Ongina will advocate the same on Poz Vibe. It was first launched in 2021 for the pride ride and allowed people with HIV to tell their stories. The podcast listens and educates people about the virus. It also persuades the watchers not to discriminate against those who are HIV positive. Ongina first came out with the virus in 2007. And since then, people have supported others a lot.
Ongina says that the open conversation about such topics has relieved her. And the best thing about it is that she can be herself, unapologetically. Similarly, when Ongina meets other people like her, she is excited to share her experience. The celebrity voices that she is not alone and that there are people with the same thing fighting and thriving. So, speaking about the pernicious disease, Ongina says that there is still a long way to go to educate people.
RuPaul’s Drag Race: Drag Queen Wants To Have The Conversation About HIV In Schools
So, as the RuPaul’s Drag Race celeb continues to talk about HIV, she also claims that so much needs to be done. Ongina wants to bring the conversation to the schools. That’s because she thinks that if the younger generation can understand it well, then the future will have better conversations. More so, the HIV topic should get included in History, or Sex Ed, says the drag queen. Ongina’s conversation went great with the podcast and matched well with the podcast’s goals.
Apart from the podcasts and the talk shows, the reality star also started a campaign, Epic Voices – Countdown to the Cure Campaign. It focuses on re-energizing the response among the LGBTQ+ community and Millennials. Stay tuned to TV Season & Spoilers for the latest updates on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
