Antoine Dodson Speaks On His Lifestyle Change & Sexuality: “You Always Have The Memories Of The Old Life”
In May of 2013, former YouTube sensation Antoine Dodson made headlines after he renounced homosexuality and came forward as a Hebrew Israelite. Just four months later, he revealed that he was expecting a child with his common law wife. Of course, everyone and their mamas had an opinion about Antoine’s lifestyle change and some even expressed that he was trying to hide who he truly is. However, more than a year has passed since his initial announcement, and he appears to be sticking to his guns.
““The person that I’m with … We’ve known each other for six plus years. We were friends in the lifestyle, going to clubs and stuff like that. But the more we started to hang together we just actually started dating. Then we just did it, it just happened. We’ve been together ever since,” he explained to Hip Hollywood.
Though Antoine admits that he was initially apprehensive when he and his partner started dating and that he questioned whether or not he was ready for the drastic lifestyle change, he says that he has since adjusted.
“At the beginning it was like that. But anything, when there’s a change, you always have the memories of the old life,” he said. “I still hang with my friends. I still have my friends, I see their lifestyle and I’m like ‘oh it’s fun.’ But then I realize I love my family.”
