The Voice Season 3 alum, Avery Wilson, celebrated his 25th birthday over the weekend by coming out as bisexual.
“I’m bisexual. Ok bye,” he wrote in a simple tweet.
The singer later took to Instagram in a lengthy post, where he touched on his personal evolution, sharing that “growth” and “happiness and love" have been part of the pursuit toward liberation.
"In my eyes, life isn't about being perfect," he wrote. "It's about growth, evolving, settling and smashing goals and most importantly happiness and love." I'm all about perfecting my love of self while not being afraid to love whoever I want, however I want. That real ENTANGLEMENT type shit."
He continued, “I’ve always personally faced but publicly never answered one HUGE question about myself — all because I wanted my privacy and I felt like my business, is just that — MY business. Well, things just don’t work that way when your known on a big social scale! TODAY, all questions and speculations of the past, now have a present definitive answer! To finally answer the question....YES, I’m a bisexual man who’s in love with LOVE. I AM WHO I AM and I LOVE WHO I LOVE. Always have and always will!”
“With that being said,” he concluded, “Cheers to new beginnings and unapologetically walking in your truth. It feels good as hell and I wish all y’all the same. Thank you for all the birthday love and constant support. Y’all are loved and cherished more than you know — for life! 25 years DOWN, many more to GROW.”
Twitter users were quick to offer support as well as criticism.
