Rebekka Armstrong        

Rebekka is the Playboy Playmate September 1986 and is also notable for being the first Playboy Playmate publicly known to be HIV-positive, which was announced in 1994.

Rebekka appeared in Playboy's September 1986 issue, and tested positive for HIV in 1989. She made her public announcement in 1994. In her speaking engagements, she notes that despite popular stereotypes of the wild sexual lives enjoyed by Playboy Playmates, she had in fact contracted HIV from a relatively normal teenage sexual encounter.

In the same article in which she announced her HIV status, Armstrong also said she was a lesbian.She was married to a man, Oliver Luettgenau, who died on March 1, 2009.

She is now an HIV/AIDS awareness activist and safer sex educator, and a spokeswoman for several HIV-related charity groups. She has also become a competitive bodybuilder, and placed first in the middleweight category of the 2004 Los Angeles Bodybuilding and Figure Championship.
