Bisexual Men

"Survival of The Fittest" Star Ryan Cleary Came Out As Bisexual

Another reality star came out, and we’re pretty excited about it.

Survival of the Fittest is another British reality contest to match the likes of Big Brother and Bromans. This time, the show finds guys and girls battling it out in mental and physical challenges in the South African Savannah.

On top of the battles, there’s also the layer of romance. Contestants have the option of pursing romance with members of the opposing team, but in doing so they risk endangering the playing of their teammates.

But what happens if one of the contestants is more into his teammates than anyone of the opposite sex? That’s what we’ll be finding out now thanks to Ryan Cleary.

27-year-old Ryan Cleary is a former jeweler who confirmed that he’s bisexual in the first episode of the show.

“I’m gonna be very honest with you guys, I’m bisexual,” Ryan told two of his housemates, David Lundy and Warren Phillips. “I’ve got to be honest with myself, and with you guys, but it’s not something I can just drop to everyone.”

Thankfully, his new friends were more than welcoming. David immediately hugged Ryan and said, “Mate, don’t worry, you’re our f***ing bro now!”

Ryan then later admitted in private that he’d be willing to use his sexuality to flirt with the boys and the girls if it helped him get further in the game.

“Obviously there’s going to be hot girls and hot guys on the show so it is everything that I would enjoy,” he said. “Gender isn’t really an issue. I’ve been with men and women. I have an advantage. I’m just going to take my pick.”

Would you let Ryan Cleary pick you?

Gospel Singer Terrence Stone Came Out As Bisexual

Philadelphia-born singer Terrence Stone came out as bisexual.

Stone, who recently changed his name from Aaron Thomas, has had a successful career as a gospel singer. He’s appeared on shows like American Idol, BET’s Sunday Best, and Showtime at the Apollo. But as he told Philadelphia Magazine, this was never enough for him.

The 27-year-old told the magazine that he’d always felt judged by the Christian and gospel worlds that he called hom.

“I lived my life according to others’ opinions of what I should do and who I should be,” he told the magazine. “Grew up singing in the church. All I knew was church. I love it and I love God. But one thing I could never agree with was the religious aspect. As a gospel artist, it was always challenging for me to be me. The expectations of the gospel industry is to present yourself as this perfect person, when I was far from that.”

Despite the limitations that the gospel industry as put on him, Terrence Stone says that he wants to be as authentically himself as possible. That not only means finding a merge between gospel and R&B, but also means making his bisexuality public knowledge.

“The gospel industry always made me feel like I wasn’t good enough. R&B is another genre of music that I love. It’s music that’s real and tells a story,” he said. “The more I grew as an artist and as a person, I knew that my gift wasn’t only for the church. I then discovered that my mission on this earth is to impact the world through my music and life story no matter the genre. The R&B platform gives me the opportunity to encourage, inspire and uplift people in an authentic way.”

Stone also recorded a message on his Instagram account to share words of encouragement with his fans and say that he'll always be himself (new name or not).

Would You Go See This Movie About A Bisexual Boxer Who Allegedly Killed His Homophobic Opponent?

News is circulating of an upcoming film about a bisexual boxer.

Director Lenny Abrahamson and producer Ed Guiney are the team that put together the Academy Award winning film Room and they want to work together again to create a film starring a bisexual man.

The two first announced their interest in the story in 2015, but news of it has been pretty thin since then.

The story would be a biopic of bisexual boxer Emile Griffith who's famous for his strength in the ring and infamous for the death of one of his opponents.

A world title match at Madison Square Garden happened in 1962 and the defender was Virgin Islander-turned-American boxer Emile Griffith. Cuban boxer Benny “The Kid” Paret supposedly called Griffith a “maricon” (meaning “faggot”) during the earlier weigh-in.

People think this resulted in Griffith going too far with Paret to the point that the competitor became unconscious. Problem is, the referee split the two up too late. Due to that, Paret was hospitalized and died 10 days later.

We don't know if that was Griffith's intention. What we do know is that now it's believed Paret died from earlier injuries that were made worse by the title fight. No matter what, Griffith earned the "killer" reputation from that day onwards.

As interesting of a character study and story as this movie may be however, we don’t actually know if it’s still in the works. Some sites state the film is in pre-production and assume it will come out in 2018 or 2019, and others, like IMDb, don’t mention the film at all.

In addition, there has been no real announcement from either Abrahamson or Guiney about the film. Honestly, we don’t know why this story has been trending on other gay sites.

That said, Abrahamson shared with deadline (2 years ago) his extreme interest in the story.

“As a character study, Griffith is incredibly compelling. There was a gentleness and innocence about him, and he never seemed conflicted about his sexuality; indeed he found joy in it. He inhabited two worlds – the underground gay scene in New York in the ‘60s and the macho world of boxing. The societal stigma at that time was dreadful and created a crushing pressure on him.”

We’re sure if there was enough public interest in it (and thus, financial backing), the two would jump to create the film.

As such, we decided to shine a spotlight on the possibility of this movie rather than just say it’s actually happening.

So, what do you think? Would you see this Emile Griffith biopic if it were to come out in theaters?
