‘Pretty Boy with the House in Virginia’ is a true account about Ortiz’s battle with the HIV virus. Ortiz contracted the HIV virus from his lover in 2010. Ortiz, a Brooklyn native, hopes to bring awareness to those who live a promiscuous lifestyle and also to those who believe that looks determine whether someone has a disease or not. Ortiz will be the second Author with a book being released through the publishing company owned by Smalls. “I am very happy to have B. Styliz on the Talk Dat Ish team. His story is very real, very honest, and I hope that people will become more conscious about the decisions they make after reading this book,” says Smalls.
In addition to the release of ‘Pretty Boy with the House In Virginia,’ Ortiz will host a free event entitled “Conversation with B. Styliz Ortiz: Living with HIV in Today’s Society.” This event will allow people to hear the real story about Ortiz’s life with HIV and more.
