Nico Tortorella's Openness About His Sexuality Has Caused His Partner's Family to Shun Them for the Holidays

“It just means we have to talk about it more," said the Younger star.

Younger star Nico Tortorella's sexual fluidity perplexes some people, but he explained on Personal Space that he's in an open, polyamorous relationship, where he considers himself pansexual and his partner, Bethany Meyer, considers herself a lesbian.

According to PEOPLE, some of his partner's family have said he's not welcome at their holiday celebrations because they don't approve.

“Because of all the attention that the relationship has gotten recently, we are coming up to the holiday season and because of certain things that were said, Bethany and I are not necessarily, completely welcome in her family celebrations this year," he admitted at the Worldwide Orphans Gala in New York City on Monday.

Nico and Bethany have been together for 11 years, he said, and this relationship has evolved over time, but if they had to do it over again, they'd still come out and speak publicly about their sexuality.

“It just means we have to talk about it more," he said. "There are millions of people in non-traditional relationships that get cut off from their families every single day and it’s not okay.”
