“I realized yeah, I’m fluid. It’s not black or white. It’s grey.”
Single Parents star Jake Choi has come out as sexually fluid.
During an interview with Very Good Light, the American actor spoke about his role as a gay man in the film Front Cover, and admitted: “When I shot the movie I identified as straight – that’s how I was conditioned. Now, I identify as fluid.”
He added: “Back when people questioned if I was gay after the move, I was like, ‘no, no.’ But after I did Front Cover, it made me think. A lot. Am I really living my truth? Am I really free? Am I still kinda, swimming upstream?
“Every day I would think. What does it mean when I’m talking to a guy and connect with him emotionally with intimate energy? Maybe it’s not just sexual but it could be. Maybe, shit, I’m attracted to everything.
“Maybe it’s more feminine or more androgynous. I realized yeah, I’m fluid. It’s not black or white. It’s grey.”
Choi also slammed straight actors who reject gay roles. “Being an actor means that you are truthfully reflecting human experiences,” he said. “Gay people are people, too.
“Human-beings aren’t defined by their sexuality. As an artist, it shouldn’t matter: you’re telling a story.”
