This Pro Wrestler Worried His Teammates Might Not Want to Shower With a Bisexual Man (Video)
As a tie-in with the new film Love, Simon, People magazine has launched a series of videos called Coming Out Stories. The series features Love, Simon director Greg Berlanti, The L Word creator Ilene Chaiken and Tyler Oakley. However, one of our favorites is the Anthony Bowens Coming Out Stories episode where he talks about the acceptance that made him leave the closet for good.
In the video, Bowens talks about knowing he was bisexual early on. However, he was worried to come out. He describes the first time he came out; it was to his best friend, Greg. Bowens was 19 years old, and was having a hard time telling anyone. He stumbled so much, Greg first asked if Bowens was dying. But when Bowens told him the truth, Greg just said he wished he’d known sooner — and that Bowens would always be his best friend.
