I can’t accept the nomination, however, and I feel it’s time that I shared the reason why with you. I am bisexual. He takatāpui au. Over the last few years, I’ve slowly been going through the process of coming out. First, I came out to my friends, then to my family, then to my colleagues, and now I’m coming out to you. I know it’s 2018 and it shouldn’t be a big deal, but honestly, it hasn’t been easy. I didn’t know I was bi until my early 20s. I didn’t know if the people I loved would be okay with it. I’m a very private person when it comes to my personal life, and I didn’t know whether I could deal with the scrutiny of having my sexuality highlighted in the media.It’s taken time, but slowly I’ve come to realise that being true to myself is important to my wellbeing. I’ve always tried to be authentically who I am and this is no different. I am proud of who I am, and I want to be open about my identity. And so, while I feel really honoured that someone nominated me to be recognised as a straight ally, it’s important that I acknowledge that I’m actually a member of the rainbow community.I also just wanted to say that while I understand that being in the public eye means that sometimes there is a heightened interest in my private life, I try my best to keep those I love out of the glare of the spotlight. I won’t be going into any further detail about my relationship with my girlfriend other than to say that I’m very happy. And at the end of the day, that’s the most important thing. #LoveIsLoveGot a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . GAYSTARNEWS- Singer/songwriter, columnist, dream-chaser.
