Archuleta Comes Out

On the same day, someone else made a statement.  When David Archuleta was on American Idol, MANY gay men eagerly questioned his sexuality.  I was not amongst those people.  Archuleta was 17 years old at the time and – well, my feeling about sexualizing youngsters is well documented.  I also knew from several sources that he came from a devoutly religious family – and had a very domineering father.  A couple of years later, I reported about David going to a NYC gay bar – ostensibly to see singer Charice.  He Tweeted, “Wasn’t my kind of place”, adding “I have friends who are gay, and they’re great people.”  Now he’s all grown up and shared the following on Instagram: “I came out in 2014 as gay to my family.”  Then he thought he might be bisexual, since he was attracted to both genders.  Now he kinda considers himself asexual.  “I don’t have too much sexual desires and urges as most people, which works I guess because I have a commitment to save myself until marriage.”  However he chooses to define himself, we congratulate him on his authenticity and wish him well on his journey.  As to waiting till marriage…well, see Colton Underwood.
