He was shocked how much support he got...
- Darren Young recently spoke with People Magazine about coming out as gay and more. Check out the highlights:
On being anxious about coming out: "I was terrified of losing friends, losing my job, just everything. I had no idea what would happen if I came out."
On the point where he did come out: "There came a point in my life where I just wasn't happy living a double life. It was spur of the moment, and I said what I said and I was confident. But when I left, I said to myself, 'What the hell did I just do?' "
On the positive reaction he's had in the locker room: "They all embraced me, and that was just shocking to me. I truly love them. It was such a relief. I'm not hiding anymore and I'm living the dream."
