Wilborn made a strong impression in Madonna's "Vogue" video.
Carlton Wilborn, one of Madonna's Blond Ambition dancers, has come out as HIV-positive in a lengthy HIV-Plus cover story. In it, he discloses that he was diagnosed almost 30 years ago and struggled with coming to terms with his disease, but is now at peace with it. He also speaks at length about his Christian faith.
Speaking about the thrill of being a part of Blond Ambition, yet to have been secretly HIV-positive:
"I’d get these grand opportunities—and now I’m touring the world and now I’m at Wembley Stadium with Madonna and we’re doing these grand things—and I had this huge secret that nobody knew about. I don’t feel it so much now, but there was a somewhat recent feeling of sadness about that time for me in reflection, in that, man I was really not able to ever sit in the glory that my life was having because there was this on-the-down-low truth going on that was [stopping me from] feeling amazing and being really excited about what I had.”
I also always loved Carlton in the movie Grief (1993).
Carlton didn't let Madonna get away with much.
