In May of 2017 WWE professional wrestler Anthony Bowens came out as bisexual and since has since been a spokesman about the stigma of being bisexual.
Last night, Bowens came out again: this time as gay.
‘In short, just about two years ago I came out as bisexual which was truely [sic] how I viewed myself at the time. However, over the last six months or so I’ve started to less identify less and less with that label to the point where it doesn’t feel like “me” anymore.
‘As people move on in their lives, the way they view the world and themselves tends to change and I’m no different. Which is why if you are to label me, I prefer to identify as gay.’
Bowens says he offers more of an explanation in a video he has made with his boyfriend, Michael Pavano.
‘There will be a mixed range of reactions and I address each one of them in the video,’ says Bowens. ‘But anyway, thank you to everyone for reading and your continued support of Michael and I. I’m looking forward to continuing to entertain you in 2019 whether that be on YouTube, the ring, or beyond!’
