Hawaii’s Colin: “I am gay.”
Colin Mortensen is a Real World Hawaii cast member, an author, and a blogger of sorts. And he’s used his web site to reveal that he’s gay. He writes, “I recently realized that I am gay. I am in a loving and committed long-term relationship with my life partner, Mike Flurry….” Also, he has two children: Dre from Outkast and Monique. And he says that he and his male friends had sex “in the confessional room when the tape was turned off.” These “revelations,” which increase in gratuitousness and offensiveness, are his response to a “presumptuous” questionnaire from Bunim-Murray Productions asking about his interest in and availability for another Challenge.
