Former Hot 97 DJ Mister Cee talks about his difficult decision to reveal his sexuality in a new public service announcement for the AIDS Health Foundation.
In the video, Cee says he kept quiet about his sexuality because of the rap community’s aversion to gays and bisexuals. He says he is now exercising his “human right for sexual freedom” and has teamed up with the AIDS Health Foundation to start a “new sexual revolution.”
The AIDS Health Foundation is a Los Angeles-based non-profit that provides HIV prevention services, testing, and healthcare for HIV patients.
Watch Mr. Cee’s full PSA above.
