NXT star Tegan Nox recently did an interview with Newsweek.com and here is an excerpt:
Last week you came out as a lesbian on Instagram. How do you feel a few days since and what has the reaction been?
“My life has always been a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ situation, but I felt like it was the right time, especially when you’ve found the right one you’re in love with. It was the right time to do that.
The reaction has been great. There are a few people who obviously don’t agree with that, but 99 percent of the reactions have been positive. I’ve got texts coming through from so many colleagues and friends. It was nice. It’s great to see that there are so many nice people in the world.”
Sonya Deville is a prominent LGBTQ+ name in the WWE. Has there been a dialogue between the two of you?
“I actually talked to Sonya before I even did this. She was a big, big help. She gave me her phone number and told me to text her if I needed anything. So we keep in contact quite a lot about it. She’s a massive help with the fans, because my family knew but my fans didn’t. So she helped me bring it out to the public.”
