'America's Next Top Model' Hunk Nyle DiMarco Comes Out As Sexually Fluid

He's also the show's first deaf contestant.

"America's Next Top Model" contestant Nyle DiMarco came out as sexually fluid to his Twitter followers last week. 

The 26-year-old heartthrob, who is the first deaf contestant on the show, made the revelation in response to a Sept. 24 question from a fan who asked if he was gay or straight. 

DiMarco, who is a native of Queens, New York, included a link to an Everyday Feminism article about identifying as sexually fluid. The article notes that people who are sexually fluid are "either always attracted to more than one gender," or "feel that their attraction may shift depending on factors like time, intimacy with certain partners, changes in hormone levels, and so forth."

Needless to say, several of DiMarco's male fans responded excitedly to his tweet. 

Meanwhile, here's an amazing "ANTM" shot of DiMarco and a Siberian husky to start your weekend off right.
