It’s that time of the year when the LGBTQIA community is celebrated the most – Pride Month. And many have chosen this month to speak out about their sexuality. One of the most prominent celebrities to come out this month was Riverdale star, Lili Reinhart.

Back home, here in India, one of television’s most popular star Vikas Gupta also came out and spoke about his sexuality. The television producer and host recently revealed that he was bisexual in a post on Instagram. Vikas recorded a video of himself talking about everything that he has been through. He said he falls in love with a human being regardless of their gender. He also said that Parth Samthaan and Priyank Sharma had forced him to come out and also mentioned he was not going to shame them because there was no use dragging them through the mud. He went on to talk about how his family has abandoned him after they got to know the truth. He told his mom that he loves her even if she doesn’t love him anymore. He thanked television actor Karan Kundra for being an older brother and protecting him even though he knew about his sexuality. Next, he spoke about how Ekta Kapoor has been there for him no matter what. The video is emotional and will definitely move you.
