Tyler Blackburn Reveals He's Dating an 'Amazing Guy,' Talks Coming Out as Bisexual

Tyler Blackburn came out as bisexual two months ago and he just gave his first interview since the important moment in his life.

The 32-year-old Roswell, New Mexico actor told Playboy that coming out as queer has made him “feel, Wow, the world’s a little bit safer than I thought it was.”

Tyler says that he began “experimenting” with men as a teenager, but he didn’t start dating men until he was 26.

“I had to really be patient with myself—and more so with men,” he said. “Certain things are much easier with women, just anatomically, and there’s a freedom in that.”

Tyler says that he is dating an “amazing guy” right now.

“As I got older, I realized good sex is when you really have something between the two of you,” he said. “It’s not just a body. The more I’ve realized that, the more able I am to be settled in my sexuality. I’m freer in my sexuality now. I’m very sexual; it’s a beautiful aspect of life.”

“Once I decided to date men, I was like, Please just let me be gay and be okay with that, because it would be a lot fucking easier. At times, bisexuality feels like a big gray zone,” Tyler added. “I’ve had to check myself and say, I know how I felt when I was in love with women and when I slept with women. That was true and real. Don’t discredit that, because you’re feeding into what other people think about bisexuality.”
