Taylor Bennett announced via Twitter that he is in fact a bi-sexual man. Known as the younger brother of Chance The Rapper, Taylor, just days before his 21st birthday Jan 19th, spoke his truth.

Taylor Bennett and many other bi-sexual women and men have the right to express their inner feelings outwardly, and if he enjoys men and women, he can. Considering the controversy surrounding Kim Burrell’s hate speech, Taylor Bennett picked a great time to inspire and encourage others like him to be themselves completely and fully;
