Tegan Nox came out last week by posting an image on Instagram, revealing her relationship with her girlfriend.
Nox spoke to Newsweek, where she talked about her personal life. She said that it was always a “don’t ask, don’t tell” affair. She felt it was the time to open about and reveal that part of her to the world. She received excellent reception following her coming out. The support she received meant a lot to her.
My life has always been a “don’t ask, don’t tell” situation, but I felt like it was the right time, especially when you’ve found the right one you’re in love with. It was the right time to do that.
The reaction has been great. There are a few people who obviously don’t agree with that, but 99 percent of the reactions have been positive. I’ve got texts coming through from so many colleagues and friends. It was nice. It’s great to see that there are so many nice people in the world.
She was then asked if she had spoken to Sonya Deville regarding this situation. She revealed Deville was a huge help in helping her make the decision.
I actually talked to Sonya before I even did this. She was a big, big help. She gave me her phone number and told me to text her if I needed anything. So we keep in contact quite a lot about it. She’s a massive help with the fans, because my family knew but my fans didn’t. So she helped me bring it out to the public.
Nox faced Io Shirai for the NXT Women’s Title on this week’s NXT, where she was unable to win the title.
