Is Colman Domingo A Gay Man?
Colman Domingo, like former Canadian swimmer Mark Tewksbury, has proudly made his sexual orientation known to the public. Yes, he is more tempted by men than by women—which makes him gay!
The heartbroken actor discussed how being open about his sexual orientation helped him and his family open up. Domingo said of his self-written autobiographical show, A Boy and His Soul,
My coming out allowed me and my family to open up, so I knew it had to be an important part of the show.
Colman elaborated on the show, saying,
Some wanted to emphasize the gay aspect and make it all about that, but it’s also about love, family, acceptance, relationships, change, the changing of a neighborhood, where we live, and where we’re going.
Furthermore, Colman demonstrated the amount of support he received from his family after deciding to come out of the closet. Domingo revealed in an interview published on metro.co.uk on September 5, 2013, that his macho brother said, ‘I love you anyway,’ after learning of his sexual orientation.
Apart from revealing his sexual orientation, Colman is only allowed to reveal the identity of his potential partner. With little information about Domingo’s previous relationships to go on, it’s possible that he’s still a long way from marrying.
