In the first interview since his coming out, Carter was asked about how he’s feeling and why he decided to come out when he did.
“All I can say is that I’m really looking forward to the future right now – and whether I choose to be with a woman or a man is my decision. No one else’s. To be honest, I’ve been thinking about it for years. I just felt like it was something I needed to do. I was having some personal issues, some turmoil in my ex-relationship. It was something that I just felt like was important and I needed to say. It was a part of a new chapter of turning 30…”
He said he has known since his early teens, but didn’t tell anyone:
“I knew when I was a little kid, like 12, 13. No-one really knew. Not my mom, no one. It wasn’t until I was about 17 that there was somebody I had a small relationship with.”
He also broke up with his girlfriend after telling her:
“I had discussed it with my ex-girlfriend and she didn’t really understand it. She didn’t want to, and that was it… We parted ways…I don’t really know what else to say about it.”
As far as the advice he’d give to others who are coming out, Carter said:
“The process is at your own pace and when you feel comfortable. There might be a lot of people who don’t agree with it, but you might be surprised by the people who do….I was shocked. I was blown away [by the supportive comments]”
“I am a single man right now. And whether I choose to be with a woman or a man is my decision.”
