Lee-Ryan-1865831Former British boy bander and current bisexual babe Lee Ryan has finally addressed accusations that he is 100 percent gay in a lengthy tweet directed at “Twitter trolls and bullies.”

He doesn’t care that people think he is gay, he says, because “sexuality doesn’t need to be defended or justified”:

I’ve been asked by a few people why I haven’t reacted over recent claims & my answer is this.. “The claims that I am gay don’t faze me. I don’t care if people think I’m gay, why would I care? I would be proud. Sexuality doesn’t need to be defended or justified.

In 2014 when individual sexuality is being celebrated, it’s odd that Twitter trolls and bullies focus on sexuality in a derogatory way. We have created change as a society, a really brilliant change and to those people who have not yet caught up to 2014 (for whatever reason) please just open your minds and begin to think #equal.

Everyone is allowed to be individual.

The former Blue singer revealed in January that he had had sex with men before in a frank discussion about orgies on Celebrity Big Brother UK. He began dating fellow houseguest Jasmine Waltz while on the show and, most recently, was the target of gay rumors when she claimed he cheated on her with a man.

In unrelated news, he takes a mean bathroom selfie:
