Nick Grimshaw Gay
Nick Grimshaw knew he was gay from a young age and accepted the fact. He was always open about his sexuality and never felt the urge to come out to announce it publicly.
In an interview with Radio Times in 2015, Nick said,
I only feel like you’re coming out if you’ve been married, or pretended you were straight. I never had any false thoughts in my brain. I didn’t have three kids and then go, ‘Guess what guys?’ There were no bulletins to be delivered because it was all I ever knew.
Nick demonstrated confidence in his sexuality while setting an example for younger generations to be comfortable in their own skin.
