Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness revealed over the weekend in The New York Times that he is HIV-positive. “That day was just as devastating as you would think it would be,” the 32-year-old writes about finding out his diagnosis in an excerpt from his memoir, Over the Top. He also tells the Times that knowing he'd divulge his HIV status in the book gave him nightmares for months. "I’m scared to be this vulnerable with people," he admits. Over the Top comes out on Tuesday.
