Unmarried Gay Actor Daniel Brocklebank, on Homosexuality: Thought It Was Just a Phase

Homosexuality has always been one of the most misinterpreted and controversial issues in human history. Due to this reason, many people were hesitant to discuss their sexual identity, especially in the early days. However, society has undergone a drastic change in the last few years, and people are now accepting gay individuals with open arms.

English actor, Daniel Brocklebank was once disgusted by his gay identity in his teenage days, but that's in the past, and now he proudly acknowledges his sexuality. Further, his journey from a troubled teenager to a proud gay man is eased with the presence of his loving companion.

Daniel, who was unsure of committing after facing a failed relationship, is happy to be with his new partner and the pair may get married soon.

In an interview with Gay Times in 2016, he explained the identity crisis phase which he felt due to lack of knowledge and information of his sexuality. He said,

‘Back then there was no internet, very few gay people on TV or in the media, and we weren’t taught about homosexuality in school due to Section 28 – so for a while I thought I might be the only person out there who felt like that. I hated myself for it and hoped it was a phase.’

However, Daniel managed to reveal his sexuality to his family when he was fifteen years old. He then told all other family members that he was a gay.

Daniel confessed in the interview that he felt immense relief after ripping off a burden about his own identity to his closest ones. He also expressed how he loved his life and himself. He said,

‘It was terrifying and exhilarating all at once. To feel free to say the words “I’m gay” out loud was one of the hardest yet most natural things in the world. Now I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love who I am.’
