The winner of So You Think You Can Dance, has came out and told the world that he is gay!
He has done this as The month of June is officially pride month for the LGBT community, and one reality competition winner has decided to publicly come out!
Now, Benji has made the decision to open up about his sexuality and his life as a gay man, who, up until last year, was a devout Mormon.
Benji recently did an interview for MormonStories.org, where he talked about his experiences of being gay and Mormon and the struggles that came along with coming out.
So happy for him!!
All the way back in the 90′s Jerry Falwell, an evangelical fundamentalist, said he was positive that the purple Teletubby was gay.
Here’s what he said exactly:
“He is purple – the gay pride color; and his antenna is shaped like a triangle – the gay-pride symbol. Role modelling the gay lifestyle is damaging to the moral lives of children.”
The lady that played the yellow Teletubbies called Laa-Laa is saying that none of the Teletubbies were gay.
Here’s what she said regarding the former ignorant statements:
“I think it’s embarrassing for the people who said it. What kind of person can take the obvious innocence and turn it intosomething else? We were hardly sexual beings.”
During her ten years as Laa-Laa, the BBC popular show fought rumours of gay undertones.
