Aaron Carter Comes Out as BISEXUAL
Bisexual visibility has never been very vibrant in entertainment — as queer visibility in and of itself is a relatively new thing as the era when coming out could destroy your career is not completely far off. The coming out of Aaron Carter — beloved 90’s tween pop star and brother of Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter — as bisexual is a big deal. The star came out on Twitter in a note saying that he’s discovered he’s 13 but it wasn’t until he was 17 that he had a sexual experience with a man.
The outpouring of support for the pop star has been overwhelming from all corners of the internet and he becomes one of the rare bisexual celebrities to be this open about his bisexuality. It’s a wonderful and encouraging thing — hopefully allowing other bi celebrities and just anyone who is bisexual to come out as well. As for Carter, he’s thanked the fans for their incredible support on Twitter.
