It has been revealed that the HIV positive porn star is Derrick Burts, a.k.a. Derek Chambers, a.k.a. Cameron Reid. Yes he really does have that many names. There is more on Derrick, all his other names and this stunning revelation below, which includes a video you are going to want to watch.
Back in October it was announced that an unnamed actor in the porn industry was HIV positive. Today Derrick Burts, also known as Cameron Reid and Derek Chambers has come forward as the actor in question. Derrick is speaking out for the first time since his diagnosis, which caused Vivid Pictures and Wicked Entertainment two of the largest film companies in the adult industry to shut down for almost a month. He is now calling for mandatory use of condoms as well as better STD testing in the adult entertainment industry after learning he had contracted the disease from one of his co-stars.
In terms of a bio this is what we know about the 24 year old. He went by the name Cameron Reid when starring in straight films and Derek Chambers when starring in gay films. His MySpace page is under the name Chambers and doesn’t reveal a whole lot about him other than his belief in god. Unfortunately that is all we know because it seems he is only in the spotlight because of this sad situation.
Derrick Burts is the HIV positive porn star that put a halt to the adult film industry with his diagnosis this fall. He has said that looking back he wishes he had known the risks of contracting a sexually transmitted disease in the industry. In my opinion that is kind of a ridiculous statement because how could you get into that industry and not know the risks. I know I will probably get back lash for saying that but it is true.
You have my thoughts on this hot topic now and I want to know yours. Check out the below video where Derrick discusses the incident and then let me know what you think about this topic.
