The model apologized to his fans for the confusion and continued, “I’m sorry for all the pain they caused when they made that post. I just got back into my account. I am going to do all I can with my team to try to identify who was behind this but again, I apologize for the confusion. And I will update you guys as more facts come in. Thank you, guys.”

Josh Seiter came out as bisexual this year

Earlier this year, Josh who was born on August 14, 1987, came out as bisexual just in time for Pride Month. During an interview with Instinct Magazine, he talked about his sexual identity.

While having a chat with the magazine, Josh spilled the beans on his upbringing and said, “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 went on to say, “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.”
