Baskin said she knew she was bisexual at a younger age, but didn’t really discover it until she was engaged to a psychologist.
“I was engaged to a psychologist, and that was his entire field, dealing with the LGBT+ community,” Baskin told PinkNews. “It was during the period when AIDS was just wreaking havoc around the world, and people were losing their loved ones, and so I became very close to people in that community then.” (RELATED: Carole Baskin Says People Have ‘Totally Missed The Point’ Of ‘Tiger King,’ Feels ‘Portrayed’ By Producers)
“It was during the ’80s that I discovered that through dealing with the LGBT+ community that I [realized] I had just as equal feelings for women as I did for men,” she added.
“I have always considered myself to be bisexual,” Baskin clarified in the interview. “Even though I’ve never had a wife, I could just as easily have a wife as a husband.”
Baskin claimed she doesn’t see people as having “different genders” or being “different colors.”
“I think we are all one and I just don’t see us as being different genders or different colors or anything,” Baskin said.
