Pro wrestler Anthony Bowens was nervous about revealing that he was bisexual given possible recriminations from other wrestlers. "My job description is to entertain fans through body language, story lines featuring over-the-top characters and, well, grappling other men dressed in a similar way," Bowens wrote on Outsports.

Bowens' boyfriend, Michael Pavavno then posted a video of the two, which was seen by a fellow wrestler. Bowens was blown away by the acceptance he received and he decided to come out publicly, a decision that has been met with positive attention.

We talk with Bowens and Pavano about their relationship and Bowens' journey. They join us at the five-minute mark.
