Ex on the Beach star David Barta looking for ‘forever partner’ after coming out as pansexual

Ex on the Beach star David Barta comes out as pansexual

Ex on the Beach star David Barta has come out as pansexual in an emotional Instagram post.

Explaining that he defines as either pansexual, bisexual, or sexually fluid, Barta said that his conservative Christian family has “come to understand me further and more intimately” since coming out to them, and that he is now looking for love.

Posting on Instagram alongside several photos of himself, the reality star and former baseball player wrote: “Over the last two years, I’ve come to the realisation that I am not a straight man.

“I can’t tell you how many countless nights I spent laying awake in bed unsettled and wondering ‘What am I?’, or ‘What are people going to think? Will someone ever really love me if I’m this way?’

“It took a great group of friends and mentors to get me comfortable and confident enough in myself to come to the conclusion that I am attracted to peoples of all genders and have since acted on those attractions, confirming my sexual identity.”

He added: “Many of you all know that I grew up in a conservative Baptist Christian household. You could all imagine what a shock it was coming out to my family in September of 2021 who I had never shared my feelings about my sexuality with until then.

“Between my family and I, the following three months were some of the hardest we had ever gone through… As time has passed, my religious family has come to understand me further and more intimately as we love each other more than ever.

“I’m just David. I’m still the same exact person, just a little more honest and open to what life has in store for me.

“At the end of the day, I know that being open and honest with myself is leading me down a path to find the love of my life, my forever partner.”

According to Out, Barta also came out on the MTV reality show, saying: “I think I’m here definitely to get to know myself better and accept myself more.

“Talking to guys is still pretty new for me. I’ve been interested in men for years now, I just haven’t been honest with myself.”
