& # 39; I just didn't want to be (gay) because it didn't apply to me then and I wasn't one of & # 39; that & # 39; people, & # 39; he added.
In the interview, which is part of the fashion bible's Men Who Raised Us podcast, the robustly handsome interior architect also talked about the sincere moment that his father accepted him for who he is – in fact even encouraged.
It happened one day when Darren heard his father talk to one of his friends on the phone and assured him that his homosexual son was still his son.
