Gay man gives testimony after testing HIV positive when 3 men gang-raped him at 19 for being gay

A gay Nigerian man, identified as Ayo shares a testimony of how he tested positive for HIV after he was gang-raped but came out strong.

Ayo said three men raped him exactly 5 years ago, when he was 19, because he’s gay. He added that he “lost” his “virginity” from the rape and later tested HIV positive.

He said he also lost his home and became an orphan.

However, he explained that his HIV diagnosis made him start living a healthy life. He stayed away from smoking and drinking, started eating healthy and taking his medications. He also started thinking less.

As a result, he says he’s now healthier and his viral load is “undetectable” while his CD4 is high.

For those living with HIV, having a high CD4 count and a low or undetectable viral load are desirable.

In a post shared days earlier, Ayo, 24, revealed he was “born gay” and started practicing homosexuality at age 7 despite his dad being an Imam He added that his biological mother threw him out of the house after he was caught “practicing homosexuality”.
