Is David Archuleta Gay?
Archuleta came out to his family as gay in 2014, and in June 2021 he revealed publicly that he is a member of the LGBT community but “not sure of my own sexuality”. He now identifies as queer.
Archuleta highlighted maintaining a balance between his sexuality and his Latter-day Saints faith, claiming “I don’t feel comfortable revealing it, but I felt compelled to raise awareness for those in my circumstance and let you know that you are not alone.
You can be a member of the LGBTQIA+ community and still believe in God and His plan for salvation.” Archuleta declared in November 2022 that he had taken a “step away” from religion and dated men since coming out.
He disclosed that previous to his coming out in 2021, he suffered an anxiety attack while on a date with his then-fiancée, and subsequently called off their engagement. Archuleta was also previously engaged to multiple women.
