Well, well, well.
We are coming out by the numbers huh? Not really. Shane Dawson came out as bisexual in a new video posted on his channel.
“I’m making this video because I feel like it could help a lot of people. Over the last year, I have been extremely sexually confused. I mean, my whole life. But this last year is when it really hit me. I always wished that I was gay, that I was just 100 percent gay—for so many reasons. No. 1, that means I would know who I was. No. 2, it would be a lot easier for me to be accepted by people because I wear wigs and dresses on the internet and I’m feminine and all these things. It’d be so much easier to be just like, ‘Yeah, I’m gay.’ But I’m not. I’m not really gay and I can’t sit here and say that I am because that’s not real and that’s not genuine. But I also can’t sit here and say that I’m straight. This is something I’ve come to the conclusion through therapy and from being honest with myself. I am bisexual,” he said. “I have said it out loud once before in therapy, and I have never really talked about it until now.”
He was in a relationship with a woman but he admitted that he had a liking for guys even when he was younger.
Two years into his relationship with fellow YouTube personality Lisa Schwartz, however, Dawson said he “started feeling guilty and I started being attracted to guys as well. I didn’t tell her. I didn’t tell anybody.” In fact, Dawson told his loyal fans, “I started really hating myself and really being ashamed and scared.”
