LAST UPDATED // Friday, 30 September 2016 13:23 Written by // Cec Busby

Pro skateboarder Brian Anderson has come out as gay in a video on Vice Sports. The acclaimed board rider who is known for his aggressive style, forewarned fans that he was making a big announcement via his Instagram.

“My name is Brian Anderson, I’m a professional skateboarder, and we are here to talk about the fact that I am gay,” he proclaimed in the video.

Anderson has kept his sexuality secret from the public for years. He is worshipped by fans and pro skaters alike for his sweet kick flip, aggressive grinding style and laid back attitude.

In teh interview Anderson goes on to say how homophobia effected him growing up.

“Hearing ‘faggot’ all the time made me think it (his sexuality) was really dangerous to talk about,”

The skater opened up about his younger years and the fact he is not a ‘gold star’ (he’s had sex with a woman).

“I dated a girl in high school and we went all the way. I checked it out and realized it wasn’t what I liked…” he explains.
