Former candidate for governor of Florida Andrew Gillum has announced that he is bisexual following a March scandal where he was allegedly caught with a male escort.
“To be very honest with you, when you didn’t ask the question, you put it out there is whether or not I identify as gay,” Gillum, who lost to Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the 2018 Florida gubernatorial election, said in an interview released Monday according to CNN.
“And the answer is I don’t identify as gay, but I do identify as bisexual, and that is something that I have never shared publicly before.”

We should all try being a little more kind.

In March 2020, Gillum was discovered drunk in a Miami Beach hotel room with Travis Dyson, a gay porn actor who advertised himself as a male escort, Politico reported. Dyson was reportedly high on crystal meth when he and Gillum were discovered and is suspected of having overdosed on the drug. (RELATED: Andrew Gillum Says His Wife
