Richard, a DJ at a radio station in Kade, Eastern Region, revealed his sad story about how he contracted HIV/AIDS to the Crime Check Foundation.
Richard says in the video interview that he moved to Accra from his hometown to pursue greener pastures.
He claimed life was terrible for him since he lived on the streets and sold water during the day and “nkatie burgers” at night.
The young guy went on to describe how he found a group of gay buddies who pledged to look after him. Richard viewed the mentioned pals as good Samaritans after struggling to make ends meet while homeless.
While they did their best to take care of him, he repaid them with sex.
Richard returned to Kade, where he was a broadcast journalist and hosted a health show.
He was inspired to verify his status after interviewing experts on HIV/AIDS.
Richard felt sure he was healthy and had nothing to worry about before the test.
As a consequence of his gay activities with his pals back in Accra, the young Health Show presenter tested positive for HIV/AIDS.
The finding concerned him, but he chose to face it because the damage was done.
Richard is now an advocate for educating the world about HIV/AIDS and the importance of choosing prevention over risky sexual behavior.
