Weeks after officially coming out to his fans, American Idol alum David Archuleta is sharing his story of learning to accept his sexuality.
In a new interview with Good Morning America, Archuleta sat down with ABC News' Steve Osunsami to talk about how it feels to publicly identify as a member of the LGBTQ community. "There's so much relief to not feel like you have to hide a part of yourself, like a secret," he said.
Archuleta, who said he still doesn't fully know how he identifies other than as "some form of being bisexual," explained that as a devout Mormon, he found himself praying constantly for his sexuality to be different. "I was praying like, 'God, you can do all things. You are a God of miracles ... Please take these feelings away from me because I don’t want to feel things I shouldn’t. I don’t want to feel things that would be wrong,'" he said.
