Rumors and Scandals
Luke came out as gay in a video posted on his YouTube channel ‘Coming Out’ on October 2, 2018. He began by speaking in support of gay people, encouraging those of them whose parents and loved ones do not support and assuring them that he loves them just the way they are.
Growing up in a small town, Luke said he felt out of place because there were no gay people there and had no representation of who he was. His family was not supportive of gay people. Realizing that Luke might be gay in his 3rd grade, considering his parent’s position on it, he decided to repress the idea in his mind and never told anyone.
At the time he was in 6th grade, he knew for sure that he was different from everybody else. He was also bullied for that. In an attempt to appear normal as he was not yet sure if he was really gay, he dated a number of girls. But it never worked. The bullying continued and finally resulted in an all-time embarrassment.
It happened when someone stole his phone, went through his internet history and say gay porn. It happened after a soccer game in his 8th grade when the entire team went out to eat and With that, everyone at school got to know the truth and the bullying increased, ultimately making him leave the team and depressed.
However, he eventually came out to his mother and siblings but his mother found it hard to accept and his siblings were very supportive.
He played football around the time he was in 3rd grade. He played under his dad who was the coach, not because he loved the sport but because his dad wanted him to go. Later, his dad played football in high school through college and because he loved the sport so much, it was his dream to coach his son. Although he didn’t want to play football, he never let anybody know about it.
In addition to not loving the sport, he was bullied and always picked on for being small and girly. This made him want to quit playing all the more. But not knowing how to tell his father, for fear of disappointing him, he decided to do the unthinkable. One day, just before practice, he put his hand in the car door. He then slammed the door against it, breaking his finger and that was it.
