Fame and HIV: 15 of History's Biggest HIV-Positive Celebrities

 8/16 

Isaac Asimov

Isaac Asimov

Isaac Asimov was one of the most prolific authors of all time, best known for his science fiction novels and short stories. He died of AIDS-related complications in 1992, but his HIV status was only revealed by his widow 10 years after his death.

Because of the tremendous stigma associated with HIV, particularly prevalent in the early '80s, Asimov's family had been advised to keep his true cause of death a secret.
