Back in April during a live airing of “Good Morning America”, ex-American footballer Colton Underwood came out as gay. This came as a surprise for many – considering he was also famous for being one of the stars of ABCs very heterosexual dating show “The Bachelor”. The series starting filming before his TV interview and follows Colton as he reveals his sexuality to unsuspecting family members, friends and others, and gets a crash course in gay. The 6-episode series, “Coming Out Colton”, launches globally on December 3rd.
Speaking to The New York Times, Colton said “I’ve lived my life so publicly straight, and I ran from a community I’ve belonged to my entire life. I knew there was going to be a lot of people who didn’t understand. Maybe at the end of these six episodes, people still don’t understand. But at least I’ve tried to undo the wrongs.”
Former professional football player and star of THE BACHELOR Colton Underwood embarks on a journey of self-discovery coming out as a gay man, including addressing his past and embracing his place in the LGBTQ community.
