VIDEO: Derrick Burts says he's the porn star who tested HIV-positive

HOLLYWOOD – Derrick Burts, who works in gay and straight adult films, tells the Los Angeles Times that he is Patient Zeta – the porn actor who recently tested HIV-positive.

Since news about the case broke in October, Patient Zeta’s identity has been protected until now because of privacy issues.

Burts, who performs as Derek Chambers and Cameron Reid, disputes allegations that he tested positive through personal intercourse. He says the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation in Sherman Oaks, where he was tested, told him that they traced the infection to a gay cast member who was known to be positive and who he worked with in Florida.

The adult star urges mandatory condom use in the making of porn.
