“I’m HIV-positive. And I have been for 12 years,” Pintauro shared on Saturday night’s episode of “Oprah:Where Are They Now?” Pintauro, 39, told Winfrey he wanted to share his health status “a long time ago,” but wasn’t ready. He said he decided to share it now to serve as a role model for the gay community. “It’s just a big deal. It’s not something that people are talking about right now really,” he said. h/t nbcnews

He shared that he was diagnosed in March 2003 while living in New York. Pintauro says he was “completely clueless” that he had the virus.
