How commendable!

Ryan Buell, the star of the A&E reality series Paranormal State, has come out of the closet as bisexual!

In his new book Paranormal State: My Journey Into The Unknown, Buell, who is also Roman Catholic, wrote about his struggle reconciling between the two, and explains:

“I’ve decided to share my sexuality and struggle over faith in hopes that others will no longer feel as though they are alone or that they can’t be religious.”

We're sure that many can certainly relate to that struggle!

Thanks for taking a stand, bb!

  1. 1

    Wonder if he's lovers with the psychic guy on the show - the one whose last name is Coffey??



  2. 2

    Cool news! I love me some Ryan and like his show. I wonder when season 5 starts?



  3. 3

    Love you, Ryan!



  4. 4

    Who is this?, and who gives a shit about his sexual preference?



  5. 5

    Oh no, I loved Ryan. Now he's flippin both ways? It's not fair for the man or the woman. ICK.



  6. 6

    Hmmm I wonder if he was or is with Sergey. He tended to be a little bit too caring in one or two episodes.



  7. 7

    More than likely, a product of child molestation. Typical of LGBT. He can try all he wants to convince himself he's happy with "who he is" but he-is-not.

    These people 'coming out' are so desperate for attention. Should all the straights 'come out', too????????



  8. 8

    It figures!!!!! All the cute ones…. this seems to be a pattern in my life!



  9. 9

    Why must gays tell us that they are gay? Who really cares?



  10. 10

    Why is it that the gays HAVE GOT to tell you their sexual preference?!!? What is it?!!? We don't give a care and, believe me, WE CAN TELL WHAT YOU ARE! You don't have to be coming out of no closet! You think we're stupid?!? "Oh, I'm gay!" "Oh, I'm bisexual!" WHO GIVES A CARE?!!?



  11. 11

    To A VOICE OF SANITY: I love your comment! You are brilliant! What drama with these coming-outers. Please. I wish you the BEST!



  12. 12

    (disclaimer: I do not discriminate against homosexuals)
    Bisexual is another way of saying 'will do anything.' Bisexual is depraved and disgusting. Bisexuals are usually so due to low self esteem or lack of control.
    Pick a team because you can't play both sides. I have no clue who this guy is and I now find him quite gross. Normally I don't care what a person does behind closed doors…

    He's definitely the anchor for that show, and really has a feel and a way for what he does on it. I like him a lot in his role.



  14. 14

    Shoot.. that is old news to me.. I kinda figured that when he put his status on myspace as "swinger".. a no brainer for me… lol..



  15. 15

    Hells yes! He's hot as hell! Glad to know he plays for both sides! Glad to hear that he not only had the courage to come out, but for him to speak out against religious intolerance! You hear so little of that these days!



  16. 16

    ardilla - I think they are a couple. They live together - with other roommates. Ryan often speaks of things Sergey has given him and they own a dog together. It would be seriously awesome if they were a couple. However, it has been my experience that a lot of men who identify as "bisexual" later come out as "gay". All the best to Ryan!



  17. 17

    hes doing it for the ratings. come on. the easiest way to get ratings and sales is "come out" as something. sad.



  18. 18

    I love the show, I'm still going to watch.



  19. 19

    I use to like his show but now it's just his producers knocking on the floor..oooooohhhhh I'm a ghost………it's lame and a sell-out.



  20. 20

    Re: A Voice of Sanity – Why must they come out? Because for centuries they've been beaten and murdered for their sexual preference. They're coming out now to build a community and to build a road for tolerance. It's easy for you since you are very likely a straight white male. You're sitting on top of the food chain. I bet you think black people fighting for tolerance are also dramatic, no?

    You don't need to come out. your straight and its accepted. Gays, bisexuals and lesbians have to in order to raise tolerance so that kids will stop committing suicide just for being different.

    Stop being a bigoted douche.



  21. 21

    Okay, im just going to come out of the closet now, since it's what everyone is doing. Huhhhh… here goes. I… am… straight. Okay I said it! Phew, glad to get that off my chest!



  22. 22

    Re: salliemander
    Where the hell did you get that?? anti-LGBT wikipedia?? As a female bisexual, I can like or love men or women. I was NEVER abused as a child, same for many bisexuals I know. I am NOT 'willing to do everything'. I care for any person in a relationship as a straight person would. I am not disgusting, you are the one who's brain is filled with shit.

    Re: A Voice of Sanity

    Eat shit you stupid cun*t.



  24. 24

    Re: mgardner – agreed!



  25. 25

    Re: camaguey

    Both you and "A Voice of Sanity" are stupid cun*ts.



  26. 26

    Re: salliemander

    You are an idiot as well.



  27. 27

    The reason people come out to the public is because the media demands it. Celebrities are hounded constantly about their sexuality, their sexual acts and private lives. Even Perez bangs on and on trying to call out peoples sexuality. Most of us don't give a rats ass about who is fucking who. Sadly though there is still plenty of people out there that LOVE this kind of "news" and bloggers/media folks eat this shit up. Until people stop giving a damn and making such a big deal about sex, sexuality and sexual preference. This will always be a story of interest.



  28. 28

    Re: camaguey – "WHO GIVES A CARE" obviously you do or you wouldn't be leaving two comments about it. and after reading your comments we don't think your stupid, we know you are. figures you would find "A Voice Of Insanity" brilliant. really, brilliant? LOL!! two peas in a pod. a couple of complete imbeciles.



  29. 29

    "BISEXUAL" = You're either too freaking promiscuous to give a good shit who you screw, or you're too much of a coward to come out and say you're gay. I still like Ryan and his show though.



  30. 30

    I guess he came out for the same reason most people come out, so they can live their lives and spend public time with their significant other the same as anyone else, without conjecture and snide remarks from jealous morons like Perez.



  31. 31

    Re: zthomas12 – thank you so much for this.. some people just don't understand like VOICE OF SANITY…
    they sit comfortably in their little glass houses and throw their stones..
    I am a happily straight woman but I do have gay friends and I think things are made easy for them becuase public figures come out of the closet..
    now it is not seen as wierd or unusual for people to be gay.. it is merely their sexual preference..
    tolerance is built by continued exposure to those unlike yourself.. once you realize there is no "normal" people, you stop judging everyone!
    Re: A Voice of Sanity – You are an ignorant fake christian piece of dogshit for that comment by the way.. his sexual preference has nothing to do with being fuckin molested.. people like you are the reason that teens kill themselves trying to fight their sexuality.. becuase bigot people like you will judge them for no reason..
    Im going to guess you were neglected as a child based on how judgmental you are about everyone else's lives.. you seem quite bossy like you have some control issues.. did mommy and daddy not love you enough?



  32. 32

    Why does he look like Chaz Bono (after SlimFast) in this pic?

    And how come he's having a bigger struggle with his homosexual desires and Roman Catholicism than even Brazilian Monsignors or soccer coach Priests do? I don't get it.



  33. 33

    Re: A Voice of Sanity – you're idiocity personified. go away.



  34. 34

    Re: schoolyard bully
    Bisexuality is not about "screwing". Its about loving. And as a bisexual, I have never "screwed anyone". If someone is promiscuous, that's their own issue. but it does NOT relate to everyone. And I know I am not gay, I like men and women equally. So get your head out of your ass and look around.



  35. 35

    Good for him…doesn't he resemble the prenant guy?



  36. 36

    Ack ack the book Ryan wrote is a memoir. In a biographical memoir, if he felt his orientation was a big part of his struggle, and the ties with the Catholic Church, then it's very relevant! He is a sweetheart, genuine and private person and this was hard for him to do. No he's not with Chip Coffey lol. He's not "with" any of the PRS team. This is no publicity stunt. Why would he come out knowing full well the negative attitudes that exist just to sell a few books? It's probably one of the hardest things he's had to do. Sorry but teamRyanBuell

  37. Danes says – reply to this


    37

    Don't worry about all the haters..they are ignorant to life …love you Ryan and your show..can't wait till it starts up again…it's hard enough to come out when your not famous, so to be famous and come out is a good thing. It lets others know it's okay too, so you did the right thing…now tell Chip to come out too haha…if he hasn't already…haha



  38. 38

    a male bisexual? yeah right. hes gay but is saying he is bi because it is easier to him than saying he is gay. all the "bisexual" men i have ever met , and i have met many, have all turned out to really be gay. but its cool because its a part of his way of coming to turms that he is, in fact gay. a few years from now he will be admitting he is gay.



  39. 39

    Chip doesn't need to come out of the closet lol. It would be like saying Chaz Bono is gay. Chip slaps the straight out of everything his scarf touches…

  40. KateT says – reply to this


    40

    Ok, I have to just write….cos I'm sick of the innuendo and certain people thinking they understand the Catholic faith. If you are sexually active outside of marriage, gay or straight, it is a mortal sin ( I won't even go into the Church's stance on homosexuality). When one is in a state of mortal sin and they should refrain from partaking from Holy Communion. Does this mean they should stop practicing their Catholic faith by attending weekly Mass? Or Holy Confession? The Holy Sacraments area gift of Grace. A gift from God! I mean abstaining from sin can only result in a closer relationship from Our Lord. And that to me is no sacrifice.



  41. 41

    i always thought he was gay- close enough



  42. 42

    Yay.. I love Ryan and Sergey…..Am happy he came out..



  43. 43

    THANK GOD! I saw the title for this and KNEW it would be about Ryan, and my heart nearly stopped. I kinda suspected it, but knowing for sure would have made me so sad. Bisexual I can live with though - the fantasy lives on! Hahah



  44. 44

    Re: A Voice of Sanity – Listen, whether you choose to hear it or not, LGBT kids (and even adults) are still being harassed for their orientation. IT STILL HAPPENS. Every time people like Ryan (whom I admire, and am sure others do too) come out, it makes it a little more socially acceptable.



  45. 45

    uh, no shit sherlock.



  46. 46

    PICK A SIDE BUELL! No double dipping. I think he said he is bi but is really all the way gay and as a Catholic is now excommunicated from the church. No girl wants to go out with a bi dude…too risky in a few respects.



  47. 47

    Ryan is great…what bugs me is that people can't spell for shit! YOU ARE = YOU'RE not YOUR. I'm so sick of this bull. And WEIRD is NOT WIRED. JEEEEESUS people…c'mon now.



  48. 48

    It's 2010, folks. It's time to stop the bigotry and homophobia! Who gives a flying f**k about someone else's sexual preference…unless you're trying to get them in the sack!

    @LisaRose - no, Ryan and I are NOT lovers.

    @BitchPlease! - You know you love my scarves.

    And with regard to my own sexual preference, I am a lesbian! :-)



  49. 49

    TEAM CHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU, REGARDLESS OF WHO YOU LOVE!!!!!!



  50. 50

    Re: patti_kate – You can call me names all day it doesn't bother me at all. Choose a side. Playing both sides of the field is disgusting, self serving and immoral. One doesn't have to be abused to have low self esteem and choose to fill that hole with anything or anyone willing …



  51. 51

    Re: schoolyard bully – lol - so very true



  52. 52

    Who really cares in the grand scheme of things? Does it really matter, does it effect you personally? NO!!!! So if the book bothers you, don't read it… If the show bothers you, don't watch it. It's that simple. Personally, I like it and I don't give a crap what their sexual preference is.



  53. 53

    Re: smeary – Quite well said!



  54. 54

    Re: ChipCoffey – F***k yah I love your scarves! No offence meant though. Orientation shouldn't be an issue.



  55. 55

    Re: ChipCoffey – Nicely said Chip! I love how you summed up everything I wanted to say so eloquently and wrapped it with a bow ^_^ BTW I love your scarf



  56. 56

    Camaguey, it's a big deal to us because some of us are outed, forced to be out, told to keep quiet about our sexuality. So while you heteros have no issues walking down the street holding hands with your boyfriend/girlfriend without being looked at and ridiculed, us gays and lesbians don't have that privelage so much. And for you to say "WHO GIVES A CARE?!" Is stupid. Apparently people DO care, or else it wouldn't be all over the news, newspapers and the internet.



  57. 57

    thanks for being the bridge for daids to jump from guys to gals bud



  58. 58

    OMG! So much hate in a lot of these comments. So many small minded people. Shouldn't we be more concerned about the kind of person they are inside?
    Kudos to Ryan for his bravery and trying to make it easier for others who are struggling with their sexuality. I'll still watch the show and read his book. I like to learn about new things and be open to other ideas.
    Chip, I love you and your scarves. And your no BS approach to life. Wish there were more like you and Ryan!



  59. 59

    Re: LisaRose – Makes one think"Coffey-au Lait"



  60. 60

    why does everyone have to come out? its lame
    should heteros come out too?
