At her account on Instagram Conchita Wurst, Eurovision victor in 2014 revealed she is a carrier of AIDS.

The 29-year-old star, who won the Eurovision Song Contest for Austria in 2014 with her anthem "Rise Like A Phoenix", has been inundated with messages of support since issuing her statement on Instagram.

"Threatening to disclose somebody's HIV standing, underneath any circumstances, is exclusively incorrect". And we all know this is not one thing which exclusively occurs to these within the public eye.

"We applaud Conchita for dealing with this with such dignity and together with in her publish that individuals dwelling with HIV who're on efficient remedy, like her, can not move the virus on".
