Speak Up With Jimmy : Ji Wallace, Part 2 (VIDEO)


This is Part 2 of my conversation with Ji Wallace, the 2000 Olympic silver medalist in trampoline from Australia. Ji was inspired to publicly come out as HIV-positive after watching a TV interview with Olympic champion diver Greg Louganis during the 2012 London Olympics. In this episode Ji talks about the importance of knowing and speaking about your HIV status. He also tells me his stories about coming out as HIV-positive to his parents and his boyfriend Shaun.
