Celebrity Friday: WWE Wrestler Daren Young Comes Out

Interesting celebrity news today! A professional wrestler named Darren Young, has apparently decided to publicly reveal that he is gay. Young, 29, is the first WWE Superstar to be out to the public as a gay man.
Young, a 29-year-old New Jersey native, is not the first openly gay wrestler in the history of the company. In the past, a few wrestlers have chosen to come out within the confines of the locker room, but have kept their sexual preference from the public. 
Orlando Jordan, a former WWE talent, portrayed an openly bisexual character during a 19-month tenure with competing Total Nonstop Action Wrestling that began in 2010. 
He is also bisexual in real life. 
Young, whose real name is Frederick Rosser, wants to inspire others within WWE who fear coming out will prove detrimental to their personal and professional lives. 
“I’m hoping to be able to make a difference,” he said. “It’s very important to me that people understand that someone’s sexual preference shouldn’t really matter. It should be about the person.
Apparently, responses to Young's announcement have been positive with WWE Champion John Cena explicitly giving his support.

Good for him! You can support Young's decision by connecting with him on Twitter at DarrenYoungWWE.

Perhaps as a followup, he can admit he's the offspring of an Oompah-Loompah and a troll doll...
