Openly revealing those secrets which society considers sinful isn’t everybody’s cup of tea.

Al Reynolds Comes Out as Bisexual!
Al Reynolds has shut down every rumor regarding his sexuality with his recent revelation. The ex-husband of Star Jones admitted in an interview with Radar Online that he is ‘capable of loving both sexes, and have done both.' He also shared that people had perceived him with anger and indignation only because of the suspicion that was swirling around. He said,
“Ever since I have been in the public eye, people have been speculating on my sexuality. And ‘speculating’ is a kind word for how it actually played out. With anger and disdain, people have been calling me out as gay, closeted, a sham and even nastier; much nastier.”
Reynolds confessed that his ingrained beliefs and fears on violating the conventional norms prevented him from speaking his sexuality aloud. He kept battling with his personal feelings for the longest times and decided to come out to encourage and provide hope to those people who are living the similar fate. He said,
“As a black man, that message and hate and homophobia were multiplied to the nth degree. I saw no path out that would resolve my personal feelings with my deeply held and ingrained religious beliefs. I tell this story to both encourage my personal path, as well as give some small measure of hope to others that no matter your beginnings, no matter the obstacles, there is nothing so fulfilling and Godlike as living the life that was destined.”
