Former Bachelorette contestant Josh Seiter is opening up about his identity and his new relationship just in time for Pride Month.

The reality TV personality first appeared in the 11th season of The Bachelorette, although he was eliminated in week one. He’s continued orbiting the reality TV space thanks to his relationships with women from 90 Day Fiancé and Love After Lockup.

But now he’s found a new romance in a fellow exotic dancer by the name of David. Seiter told TV Shows Ace that he and David have been seeing each other on and off since November of last year, and that he’s “excited to finally be in a healthy relationship” after “a lot of disastrous relationships with women.”

He also opened up to Instinct Magazine about his bisexual identity (Seiter previously identified as pansexual), and how it “manifested later in life.”

“I believe my upbringing, in the homeschooled Christian niche that we were brought up in, stayed with me, both consciously and unconsciously, for years after leaving home for college,” he said. “I always knew as an early teen I was different sexually, I just don’t think I had the vocabulary to articulate what the difference was.”

“In the distant past, what people might think of my attraction to men and women definitely played an operative role in keeping me silenced about my identity, but those concerns don’t bother me now,” he added.

There’s never a bad time to come out or do some self-reflection about how societal norms have shaped our own perceptions of ourselves, even if it feels later in life than we might prefer. After all, learning more about who we are never truly stops.
