Tj Osborne is opening up about life since coming out as gay. In an interview with CBS This Morning, he said, “Once I finally came out, I didn’t really understand the magnitude of how much people cared about me and loved me and supported me. Had I known that the whole time, I would have done it probably a long time ago and saved myself a lot of strife?” He also said, “It has been a tsunami of love, almost to the point that it was hard for me to comprehend it for several days.
My close family and friends have known for a while. At the same time, I felt publicly I was stuck in a second gear phase that type of attention is just uncomfortable.
To be able to do that in that moment, to do it in one fell swoop, it was nice …
For me, it was that moment of just taking a leap of faith.
