‘The Borgias’ Star François Arnaud Came Out as Bisexual

Congrats to François Arnaud, who came out as bisexual this week.

In honor of Bi Visibility Day, François explained in a lengthy post on his Instagram Story that he had long chosen to remain silent on the matter due to a “fear of oversharing” and “because ‘masculinity’ is the most fragile currency.”

“Last week, I was chatting with work friends, and as I brought up a trip I’d taken with an ex-girlfriend, I asked myself — for the ten-thousandth time — how to tell such a story without making it seem like that was the whole story of me,” he wrote.

He added, “I’m sure many bisexual guys feel the same and end up doing as I did: letting other people’s assumptions of straightness stand uncorrected. Perhaps out of fear of oversharing. Under the guise of privacy, maybe. Probably because ‘masculinity’ is a most fragile currency, ready to nose-dive at the first sign of vulnerability or difference.”

Thank you for being brave, François.
