Accused HIV+ Speaks

My name is ROSCOE PERRY CARBONELL, and I'm 27 years old I am presently residing here near De Castro Ave. Pasig City. I am an HIV+ person… I am very sorry" alam ko na na may HIV ako last October 2008 pa pero nakipag sex parin ako kasi gusto ko makaganti (I know that I have HIV since 2008 but I still have sex just to get revenge)" …To all those whom I had sex before.. " Sana mapatawad niyo ako (I hope you could forgive me)".

These are some of the shocking words written in the one and only post at

Recently this alarming web URL is being circulated regarding a guy from San Juan declaring his HIV/AIDS Positive status, claiming that he, personally, was the one who made the website. To my curiosity, I tried to contact him in his YM account found in his website.

After a few days later, he replied to my messages. Then we had a brief conversation to confirm his health situation. I was supposed to lend him a helping hand and lead him to the organizations and experts on AIDS Awareness and Prevention in the Philippines.

To my surprise, the site is “Fraudulent”. This is how he describes the content of the website.

“I’m not HIV+”, cries Rosco Perry Carbonell, also known as Coco.
As we continued with our small discussion, he stated that he is not responsible for creating the blog site. Then I asked who’s accountable for doing it? Coco replied, “My great enemies… I already sued the 2 guys who made it” According to him, the alleged mastermind of creating and disseminating the website made two (2) fake accounts in Planetromeo and Manjam, luckily, he was able to report it to the site admin and was eventually removed.

At present, Coco is experiencing grave emotional and psychological trauma with the issue. Every aspect in his life was affected including his family, career, social, and love life. There was an instance when Coco was walking in the mall and suddenly, someone pointed at him saying that I am HIV+. Carbonell shares, “Everyone was looking at me with dismay, so I just went away from the crowd”

He is currently pursuing a case against the guys, who did this to him, however, it seems that are not replying to the summons of the trial. Though he did not mention the names of the said persons, he personally knows them and all their contact information, where they live, and even their full name. According to an email I received, if proven guilty, they can be charged with a criminal offense which is punishable by law.

Coco is asking everyone not to believe in the hearsays about his physical condition. “… no one is allowed to point an individual whether he or she is (HIV) positive or negative”, Carbonell emphasized.

This is a serious matter and is not to be taken lightly. The damage was done and he is now attached to the stigma of the society. Hopefully his case will be closed and prove to the community that he is a victim of a malicious act and false accusation.

“Again I’m not HIV+”-Coco

the problem kasi with HIV+, mostly connected sa gays. kaya double stigma=(
sin verguenza!!! i can't believe some people can live with themselves after having done such a thing...

this is definitely something that should be resolved through the courts. i believe most of europe and united states makes this kind of defamatory behavior regarding HIV status criminal as well.

thats just not fair...its like killing everything about your self.
I agree with Line of Light and Dats...

these things demand justice in every sense of the word...

and true, that's just taking one's life from under him and leaving him vulnerable to the ills of bigotry...

people who bear such ill will, their retribution shall be swift in divine hands

Comments from other sites:


There are many sick people all over the world. Sick in that they have no respect for other people. There are many gays who go around "outing" other gays. I respect others rights to live their own lives as they wish. But there are many people who feel that because they choose to be openly gay, they have a right to force others to live openly gay lifestyles to strengthen gay rights in general.

Where I live, in the last 6 years there have been 2 people murdered solely because they were gay. One of those was a teen around 13 years of age, THROWN OFF THE SIDE OF A BRIDGE by two other teenagers. A 3rd person was the victim of an assault with deadly force, he survived and recovered. The assault was again, solely because the guy was gay.

I choose caution.

a response from PG4M:

thanks for posting in my thread about hiv awareness. the culprits can be jailed. i will still have to review the ra8504 please tell coco to write me an email. i will provide him a lawyer to pursue his case when i come back to manila this september. he has to undergo an hiv test with me around so he can prove that he is negative and please tell him at the moment not to be ashamed or alarmed if deep in his heart he is negative. he can just put his head up high instead of being afffected by the stigma done by his so called "detractors". Kindly tell him to write me an email. thank you.
i am sorry,too.
i wish you the best health and successful!

Mga parausang lumang sinehan

NAG DESISYON na ang Korte Suprema na labag sa Konstitusyon ang ordinansa na nagbabawal ng short time sa mga motel sa siyudad ng Maynila.

Wala na ring balak pa umanong maghain ng apela si mayor Alfredo Lim sa naturang desisyon.

Nagbabala naman si Lim na handa niyang ipasara ang anumang motel sa lungsod ng Maynila sakaling may makita sila na pinapayagan na magpapasok ng mga estudyante para magshort time.
Pero, teka, ito talaga ang pakay ko, ang mga lumang sinehan sa Metro Manila.

Taong 2005, balak ko na itong iparating sa dati kong boss na Kongresista, ang patuloy na pamamayagpag ng mga lumang sinehan sa Maynila. Subalit, may tila tinik sa aking lalamunan na nakabara. Tila, wala akong boses sa tuwing ako ay maghahanda sa aking mga sasabihin. Tila, nakagapos ang aking mga kamay para isulat ang mga hakbang na dapat kong irekomenda para masulosyunan na ito.

Alam ko, ikaw ay pamilyar ukol sa mga lumang sinehan sa buong Kamaynilaan.

Sa unang pasok ko sa ganitong sinehan, ako ay tuwang tuwa. Napan…


NGAYON ANG IKA 111st NA ANIBERSARYO NG ARAW NG KALAYAAN NG PILIPINAS. Ngunit, sa paglipas ng isang daan at labing isang taon, tunay nga ba tayong malaya na?

May mga pagkakataong gusto kong isipin na hindi na tayo nakagapos sa mga bansang banyaga dahil nagkaroon na tayo ng kalayaan sa pamamalakad ng gobyerno. Ngunit, ano ang kalagayan ng mga Pilipino ngayon? Mayroon na nga ba siyang dangal na matatawag? Taas noo na nga ba ang bawat Pilipino kahit kanino?

Sa mga nakalipas na araw, samu’t saring problema ang dinaranas ng ating bansa. Mga problemang lalong nagpapalugmok ng bawat mamamayan. Mga problemang animo’y walang katapusan. Paano babangon ang isang Juan dela Cruz kung mismong mga namumuno sa ating bayan ang nagbabangayan? Paano tayo makakalaya kong mismong mga halal ng bayan ang siyang nanguna upang itali ang bawat mahihirap na pinoy sa kanilang pamamahala?Paano na ang walang tigil na pagbulusok ng presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin? Ang walang humpay na pagtaas ng gasolina. Paano pa m…

Ang Kondisyon ng HIV at AIDS sa Pilipinas

Akda ni Marlon Lacsamana

Taong 1984 ng sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon ay mayroong naitala na Pilipino sa Philippine’s National AIDS Registry ng Department of Health (DOH). Mula noon, umaabot na sa 3,589 ang nakalista na may HIV hanggang Disyembre ng 2008. Sa bawat taon, patuloy ang pagtaas ng bilang ng mga taong nabubuhay na may HIV sa bansa. Kapansin-pansin din ang bilis ng pagdami ng mga kasong naitala sa kasalukuyang dekada kumpara noong dekada ’80s at ’90s. Mula 1984 hangang 1989 ay may kulang-kulang sa 50. Sa taong 1990 hangang 1992 mahigit 50 pero kulang sa 100 ang mga kaso sa loob ng taon. Sa taong 1993 hangang 2004, humihigit na sa 100 ang kaso. Sa taong 2006 mahigit 300 ang naitala. At sa 2008 mahigit 500. (NEC, 2008).

Tanggap na ngayon sa bansa na ang HIV ay hidden and growing. Ito ay isang pagtingin na mula na rin sa UNAIDS. Ang pagsusuring ito ay bag na sa dating paniniwala na mula lamang sa mga mosk at risk population (MARPs) – persons in prostitutions and their clients, male…
