In 2020, Dyllón Burnside defined his sexuality as “queer, not gay.” The “POSE” star further explained that he has been in both sexual and romantic relationships with men and also women.

Burnside explained:

‘…queerness is about understanding that I exist outside of the sexual binary of just gay or straight.’

For Dyllón, “sex between men is not dirty.” In an interview, he claimed that gay sex is holy, pure, and sacred.

He clarified:

‘I can relate it to my relationship with God because for me, it’s a spiritual experience.’

While Dyllón has now fully accepted his sexual identity, it was not easy from the onset. According to reports, it was difficult coming out as queer because he grew up in a family where the conventional gender binary was the standard. However, today, Dyllón Burnside is not just openly queer, he is also an LGBTQ advocate who speaks against toxic masculinity.
