‘The Borgias’ actor François Arnaud comes out as bisexual

“The Borgias” star François Arnaud has come out as bisexual.

On Sunday, the actor, 35, revealed his sexual orientation on Instagram, explaining that he wanted to combat stigma and stereotypes surrounding bisexuality.

“Last week, I was chatting with work friends, and as I brought up a trip I’d taken with an ex-girlfriend, I asked myself — for the ten-thousandth time — how to tell such a story without making it seem like that was the whole story of me,” he began in a series of messages on his Story.

“I’m sure many bisexual guys feel the same and end up doing as I did: letting other people’s assumptions of straightness stand uncorrected,” he continued. “Perhaps out of fear of oversharing. Under the guise of privacy, maybe. Probably because ‘masculinity’ is a most fragile currency, ready to nose-dive at the first sign of vulnerability or difference. And because it’s really f—king scary to give up your privilege. Without a doubt because stigmas of indecisiveness, infidelity, deception and trendiness are still clinging to bisexuality.”

Arnaud went on to say that silence perpetuates negative stereotypes, “making bi guys invisible, and leading people to doubt that we even exist.”

“No wonder it’s still a chore to acknowledge bisexuality without getting into lengthy explanations. So yes, labels are frustrating and words, imperfect,” he concluded. “But I’ve always considered myself bisexual. Not confused or trying to look edgy. Not disloyal. Not ashamed. Not invisible. Happy #bivisibilityday this Wednesday.”

The Canadian-born actor played Cesare Borgia in the racy Showtime drama opposite Jeremy Irons and also starred in “Midnight, Texas.”

He previously dated Holliday Grainger, who also appeared in “The Borgias,” as well as Evelyne Brochu and Sarah Gadon.
