It's such a shame that in 2013, people are still afraid to embrace their sexuality publicly.
Luckily for us, people continually crush that fear day after day, boldly displaying their true selves and whom they love — and Darren Young, a professional wrestler for the WWE, was one of the strong ones despite his fear!
Here's what he said:
"I was terrified of losing friends, losing my job, just everything. I had no idea what would happen if I came out."
Well, we're happy that we're able to say that he had nothing really to fear at all — he was welcomed with open arms by the WWE, colleagues, friends, fans, and family. Sure there were some close-minded people, but that was just inaudible noise amongst the cheering and support.
"There came a point in my life where I just wasn't happy living a double life. It was spur of the moment, and I said what I said and I was confident. But when I left, I said to myself, 'What the hell did I just do?'
They all embraced me, and that was just shocking to me. I truly love them. It was such a relief. I'm not hiding anymore and I'm living the dream."
We are still sooooo happy and soooo proud of him! He's an inspiration to all — and now he can openly continue to live with his boyfriend of two years, 25 year-old Nick Villa.
We wish nothing but the best for the couple, and for Darren in the future!
