AB Chao: “I Am Real Gay”

Over a month after speculation began on GOMIBLOG, AB Chao has confirmed that “Vince Chao and I are no longer a married couple”. She then announces what GOMIBLOGers have long suspected:

Y’all, I am real gay. For ladies.

I know. I KNOW. It was a surprise to me, too. In fact, it was a surprise to just about everyone. I’ve spent the past year-ish coming out: first to Vince and Madeleine, then to my closest friends, then to my family, then to my not-as-close friends, then to pretty much everyone else.

She adds that for those following her social media accounts, the “subtext is fairly obvious to anyone who’s been paying attention”.

I am gay. It took me a long time to be able to say those words without shame, or embarrassment, or feeling like a fraud… I am also thankful to be a part of a growing chorus of people who are stepping up, and out, to tell our stories. It makes me proud to be a member of this community.

AB ends by stating she would “like to respect my family’s privacy, so I won’t be answering specific questions about their lives — those are their stories to tell.”
