Comment on the photo,

Christopher Klettermayr initially used a pseudonym to be able to talk about AIDS

“As a Western European gay and white, I would never have thought that my test (HIV test) would be positive.”

It was Christopher Klettermayr – also known as Philip Spiegel – a 38-year-old Austrian citizen who discovered he was infected with HIV in 2014.

It was a day he still remembered as if it had happened yesterday.

His discovery did not take place in Austria, but in India, where he was assigned to a photojournalist and planned to go to the local Hindu temple.
