FLORIDA — Kameron Scott, the ex-gay porn performer diagnosed with HIV in 2008, is now on AIDS medication and documenting his progress with an online column for gay site SFGN.com.

Scott, whose real name is Ryan Dixon, contracted the life-threatening disease just as his career was starting to boom, following a Grabby-nominated performance for his work in Titan’s “Playbook.”

He officially retired from the adult industry in 2009, but did not announce his reason for doing so until a 2010 interview with TheSword.com.

I found out December 15, 2008,” he told the site. “I had just signed a contract with a new studio. The first person I called was my agent, Baileey. He was really quiet when I told him; he’s usually such a ham on the phone. That made me realize the severity of things.”

Today marks day 30 in Scott’s study. He has been on HIV medication for two weeks and is reporting encouraging results.

“So, after two weeks on medication, my viral load went from 4781 to nearly zero. No I’m not cured, but from what the labs at Gilead said, it’s hard to detect the virus in my blood,” Scott writes on SFGN.com. “The virus is still there, but the HIV virus is a retro virus that needs a host to replicate. Since the medicine I’m on is stopping that replication process, the copies of the virus has dropped drastically.

“I’ve gone from wondering what this virus is going to do to me, wondering if I had the strength to fight it on my own, to getting some of the best medical care in the world and having a breakthrough in my treatment for the first time in my diagnosis.”

Scott broke into adult in 2005 and went on to perform in less than 20 gay titles.
