Former Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum came out as bisexual in an interview with Tamron Hall following an incident in March in which authorities responded to reports of a suspected drug overdose and discovered a nude, inebriated Gillum in a Miami hotel.
“I don’t identify as gay, but I do identify as bisexual. And that is something I have never shared publicly before,” the former Tallahassee mayor told Hall during the interview, his wife, R. Jai Gillum, alongside him:
Andrew Gillum to @tamronhall: “I don’t identify as gay, but I do identify as bisexual.”

His wife reportedly defended him, stating that bisexuality is widely misunderstood and expressed her belief that sexuality exists “on a spectrum.”
“All I care about is what’s between us and what agreement we make,” she said.
