Ongina, who appeared on the first season of all-gay cabler Logo's RuPaul's Drag Race, has recorded a video in support of the non-profit group Re:solve AIDS.

During an emotional breakdown in episode four of the show's first season, Ongina acknowledged that he is HIV-positive and had yet to tell his parents.

“Hi, my name is Ongina and most of you know that I'm HIV-positive, so please make sure you protect yourself, if you're HIV-negative, or if you're positive, please make sure that you're careful and always take care of yourself. Always get tested and please support the Chronic Disease Fund for Re:solve AIDS. Thank you.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Ongina, who is based in Los Angeles, has gone on to become the host of Logo's HIV + Me, a video segment that features young people living with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Last week, RuPaul, the host of RuPaul's Drag Race and America's first drag superstar, crowned Raja, rocker Adam Lambert's makeup artist, the winner of the show's third season.
