Coming out

Pro Wrestler Anthony Bowens Comes Out As Bisexual

WWE wrestler Anthony Bowens officially came out as bisexual in an essay posted on Outsports.com. Bowens had been keeping his boyfriend a secret from his fellow wrestlers but a video he made with his boyfriend, Michael Pavano, was found by a fellow wrestler.

It was this past fall and I was three months into a relationship with my boyfriend, Michael Pavano. Mike and I had uploaded a video to YouTube on his channel called “The Laughing Challenge,” where he described me as his boyfriend.

Weeks later, I received a text that made my stomach drop.

It was from my best friend in the wrestling business, and someone I specifically made sure to keep my secret from. The text read: “Bro, why didn’t you tell me?” I knew exactly what he meant but I played dumb. “What do you mean?” I replied. He response was that he saw “the video.”

 Much to my great relief, he told me he didn’t care and that I was one of his best friends in the business.

He also said that some of the other wrestlers had watched it too and tipped him off about it. I was relieved that he was cool with everything but a bit nervous because other wrestlers knew. It was after this that I came to the conclusion that I had a decision to make.
