R&B and gospel singer made an announcement that surprised many of his fans, the Philadelphia local said that he is bisexual. Coming out in an interview with Philadelphia Magazine, Terrence Stone (formerly known an Aaron Thomas) talked about his upbringing in the City of Brotherly Love and then said that he wants to use his platform to represent his true self within the faith-based music industry.
“All I knew was church. I love it and I love God. But one thing I could never agree with was the religious aspect. As a gospel artist, it was always challenging for me to be me. The expectations of the gospel industry is to present yourself as this perfect person, when I was far from that,” he said.
For those who may not know the talented man, he has appeared on shows like American Idol and Showtime at the Apollo.
Stone discusses his ex-boyfriend. “We broke up early 2017. He taught me a lot about myself. I always felt like I didn’t deserve him. Because I had such a dark past I wasn’t willing to grow with him over time to reveal all of who I was because I was afraid he wouldn’t love me anymore. Being together off and on for four years really showed me what true love is when it comes to a relationship”
