- Carole Baskin has come out as bisexual in a new interview.
- The animal rights activist says she started exploring her sexuality in the 80s.
- "I have always considered myself to be bisexual," says Carole. "Even though I’ve never had a wife, I could just as easily have a wife as a husband."
Carole Baskin, known for her role in Netflix’s wildly popular documentary series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness, has come out as bisexual.
Speaking to Pink News, the Big Cat Rescue founder revealed during the 80s, while she was engaged to a psychologist who worked with LGBT community, that she first started exploring her sexuality.
"It was during the ’80s that I discovered that through dealing with the LGBT+ community that I [realised] I had just as equal feelings for women as I did for men."
She said: "I have always considered myself to be bisexual. Even though I’ve never had a wife, I could just as easily have a wife as a husband. As far as the way I feel about us, I think we are all one and I just don’t see us as being different genders or different colours or anything."
The 59-year-old also opened up about her feelings towards Joe Exotic during the interview. When asked if she thinks Joe is a good representation of the queer community, she said: "I think he’s an embarrassment to the human community.
"It’s not a matter of what your sexuality is, this man is just a deviant in the way that he treats human life and animal life. I think he’s a malignant narcissist, and that it’s all about him. It doesn’t have anything to do with any of the communities that he may associate himself with."
Joe Exotic is currently serving a 22-year sentence in prison for hiring someone to kill Carole Baskin.
Carole was recently eliminated from Dancing with the Stars.
