!! OMG, Andi Mack star Joshua Rush comes out as bisexual !!

Disney Star Joshua Rush tweeted:

“first to respond to this tweet is bi lol. first! i win! it’s me. i’m bi. And now that I’ve said that, I have a few things to rant about. There are more important things to talk about than me liking a whole bunch of genders, but I do want to share a few things with you guys. I saw so many of you watch Cyrus come out and said ‘Hey! I can be me!’ How ironic, isn’t it, that me, playing that character, never had mustered up that courage? Instead of feeling the courage to tell you today that I am an out and proud bisexual man because of the character I played for four years, I feel that courage thinking of all of you, who felt emboldened by Cyrus to come out.”

Rush added:

“I had a close friend of mine come out to me in fifth grade. FIFTH GRADE! That was well before I had any clue of my own identity and orientation. I suffered with some level of my own internalized homophobia even while playing the first openly gay character on Disney Channel. I stuffed the existential crisis of talking about my sexual orientation into a box in my mind for years. Today, I release it into the world. Being bi isn’t all of my identity, nor is it the most important part of my identity. Bi erasure and issues like it are important, but trans women of color still have a life expectancy of THIRTY FIVE YEARS and that is absolutely unacceptable.”

Rush then asked followers to donate to GLAAD and the Trevor Project and read GLAAD’s page on bisexuality. He ended by saying,

“Thank you to you for giving me the courage to know who I am and tell you this today. Happy 20biteen”

Congrats and welcome to living authentically, Josh, as well as encouraging many others to do the same!

  1. What a bunch of naggy old queens on here. Cut the kid some slack and get over yourselves. I swear, the hate for the freedoms of the younger generations (ones the older ones have worked so hard and died for) is truly despicable and I’m not even a part of that generation. Disgusting.
    Everything he says in his letter is how I hope most of the coming generations are going to feel and believe. And Roy, who are you to discredit someones “coming out”. Truly a disgrace.

  2. who cares?

  4. Celebrities coming out of the closet apparently is one of the current fads coming out of California these days.
