The month of June is officially pride month for the LGBT community, and one reality competition winner has decided to publicly come out!
You probably remember Benji Schwimmer, the season two winner of So You Think You Can Dance, who impressed everyone with his incredible talent back in 2006!
Now, Benji has made the decision to open up about his sexuality and his life as a gay man, who, up until last year, was a devout Mormon.
Benji recently did an interview for MormonStories.org, where he talked about his experiences of being gay and Mormon and the struggles that came along with coming out.
Check out the eye-opening interview to hear about Benji’s brave and honest story HERE.
Wow, what a courageous thing to do…we are proud of you, Benji!
