Sony Deville opens up about being WWE's first openly lesbian star.

Inspiring millions around the world, Sony Deville is a true inspiration.


“I mean, it’s not something that I ever  think about like that, right? It’s always  just like, ‘Yeah, I am who I am, and I’m a  WWE superstar.’ But obviously, I realize  the effect and influence it has on other  members of the LGBTQ community, and  I love being a part of that."

That change in that kind of power that I can give to them, like, ‘Hey, if I can do it, you can do it. And if I can be myself unapologetically, so can you. And you should never be ashamed or afraid of who you are or who you love. It’s should simply just be,'” Deville said.

Deville is advocating for more LGBTQ-angle storylines in WWE.

“Just as you would have a male superstar on the phone with their wife in a backstage segment or interacting with another female."  She said.
