Madonna Dancer Carlton Kept His HIV Status Secret During The Blond Ambition Tour

by Jeremy Kinser April 06, 2016

MadonnaTruth_132Pyxurz-1024x776I was deeply hiding my HIV status when we were on the road. I couldn’t embrace those high levels of accomplishment at the time, because I had this other thing going on.I was diagnosed in 1985 on tour with a company in Hawaii. I moved to L.A. in 1986, largely because of my diagnosis. In 1985 it was fire and brimstone.
