Bisexual categories[edit]

While general LGBT categories are certainly supported by the source provided, it isn't sufficient to support explicitly declaring him as bisexual — for that, we need to wait until he can be explicitly quoted using the word "bisexual" in reference to himself. The fact that he was previously married to an opposite-sex spouse does not, in and of itself, prove that he's bisexual — lots of people who are gay-not-bisexual, but were merely in the closet about it at an earlier point in their lives, have done that too. So in the absence of additional evidence about where he identifies himself as fitting into the LGBT spectrum, it's not appropriate for us to presume whether he identifies as gay-not-bisexual or bisexual-not-gay. General non-specific "LGBT" categories are fine, but specifically G or B ones need to wait until he can be properly sourced as actually using one of those two words for himself.
