Anthony Bowen now IDs as gay, not bisexual.
Wrestler Anthony Bowens has come out, again. This time, he says he identifies as gay rather than bisexual. Previously the athlete identified as bi, but now says after some self-reflecting that he identifies more with being gay.
In a series of social media posts, the sportsman wrote that the way in which he viewed himself had changed – especially in the last six months.
Anthony first came out two years ago, when his YouTuber partner, Michael Pavano, introduced him to his fans as his boyfriend.
He wrote: “In short, just about two years ago I came out as bisexual which was truly how I viewed myself at the time.
“However, over the last 6 months or so I’ve started identify less and less with that label to the point where it doesn’t feel like it’s ‘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. There will be a mixed range of reactions and I address each one of them in the video.”

He continued that he still advocates for bisexuality saying, “I still advocate for bisexuality 100 percent, because that is what I identified myself as and it’s still what a lot of bisexual people identify themselves as. Everybody has their own way of figuring themselves out.”
