When asked about how his own search for love is going, the dancer explained that he thought he didn’t deserve love.

He said: “Due to internalised homophobia for the longest time, I thought that I did not deserve love. And it’s a journey and the fact that I’m here at a place of acceptance and abundance, I feel like I’m ready so we’ll see.”
