Nico opened up to Vulture about his sexuality and how he slept with a straight friend in High School to help him come out.
“This is going to sound fucked, but I knew that he was really struggling. And I was like, ‘Look, if I hook up with him, maybe it will make things easier for him.’ We hooked up. There was no assplay at all. It was just dick-to-mouth here. He was shaken up about it and I was like, ‘It’s fine. What happened last night doesn’t make you the person that you are. Why are you putting so much weight on it?’ And when that happened, I was like, ‘Oh, I’m thinking about this differently than everyone else is thinking about it.’”
Nico previously spoke about being sexually fluid but seems comfortable identifying as bisexual now.
“The more I’m having these conversations, the more comfortable I am identifying as bisexual. I’ve been so hesitant about using the word for so long, because it does have a negative connotation in our generation. People fought for so long for that ‘B’ in LGBT, and I refuse to be the person that’s going to throw that away because I think I have a more colorful word.”
