“I thought that I needed to go. And so I descended into drugs and into sexual bathhouses to die,” Daniels said during a lecture at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film & TV.
He went on to give credit to GOD, as the main reason as to why he is still alive and living an AIDS-free life. “That I don’t have AIDS is a miracle from God,” he said. “I really don’t understand it, because I should have had HIV. Everybody else did.”
Mr. Daniels also opened up about the virus, which has plagued the homosexual and heterosexual realms of our society, as well as how it was the reason why he was forced to watch a number of his friends suffer, until their passing.
“It [AIDS] wiped away all of my friends. I had no friends,” he said. “It was terrifying, because we never knew whether you could drink from glasses or what it was. It was the most terrifying thing ever, and I didn’t understand why it was that I wasn’t [dead], because there were far better souls than me that were going [dying].”
