LAST week, news of the “not born gay” billboard erected on the side of a highway in the US state of Virginia sparked huge controversy on social media.
However, it has since emerged that the the model Kyle Roux is not only not a twin, but he is also openly-gay.
Roux, who lives in South Africa, reportedly said he was “shocked” to to find out his image was being used on the billboard.
The images were also reportedly taken a few years ago and belonged to a stock image company.
Speaking with South African NBC affiliate, Roux stated: “It just seems like there’s no place in today’s world for an organisation that is promoting [being gay] as being some kind of deviant or distasteful lifestyle, because I’ve lived my life openly gay and happy for my entire life.”
