Reece King: Sexuality, Girlfriend, Boyfriend, Relationship
Reece King’s sexuality had long been a subject of discussion. He shared that once he had lost a lob because his employers thought he looked “too femme”. King never had thought that his sexuality would be of importance to the others.
Determined to end all the speculations, in January 2018, Reece King opened up into his sexuality in an interview with GayTimes magazine. He revealed that he is bisexual. He also added that it did take some time to “come out” due to biphobia, which is also present in the fashion world.
He further added,
"I think a lot more creative LGBTQ people have taken the limelight, especially on social media. We see them on mood boards at shoots for inspiration. If people just keep doing their thing unapologetically, it breaks down the barriers in more homophobic environments."
