Florida’s Democrat Andrew Gillum Identifies as Bisexual
Last March I posed about a high profile Democrat in Florida who had a few problems that allegedly involved meth, a male sex worker named Travis, and a hotel room. He’s also married to a woman and he has children. Here’s a link to the back story.
After a good deal of speculation, he recently made a few statements about how he identifies. The story made most news outlets, but this one seems to give good back story.
Former Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum came out as bisexual in an interview with Tamron Hall that aired Monday, six months after he was found inebriated and vomiting in a Miami hotel room. Paramedics and police officers responding to a call about a possible drug overdose in that hotel room found crystal meth when they arrived. A male sex worker was there, too.
Here’s more. I hate to comment on anyone who comes out, or anyone who’s been in the closet. There are always so many extenuating factors and it’s never, ever easy for anyone to come out. As a gay man I know this. But the straights don’t always realize that. I just hope Gillum gets it all worked out and moves on from that hotel room experience. He seems like a nice guy.
