‘I used to sit in bed and pray that no one would be gay because that was easier for me than accepting that I was,’ he said. 

‘I just didn’t want [being gay] to exist because then it wouldn’t apply to me and then I wasn’t one of ‘those’ people.’ 

In the interview, which is part of the fashion bible’s Men Who Raised Us podcast, the ruggedly handsome interior designer also spoke about the heartfelt moment his dad accepted him for who he is – in fact, even encouraged it.

‘I know he said that so I could hear it… he was letting me know it was okay for me to tell him when I was ready,’ added Darren.
