Sources close to Andrew Cuomo tell The Chronicle that the Governor may be willing to come out as ‘openly bisexual’ if he happens to be offered a Cabinet position in President-elect Joe Biden‘s administration — presuming that Biden is eager to project a diverse-governing thematic and that he is looking to make ‘historic-first’ appointments.
To New Yorkers’ immense disappointment, Biden passed over Cuomo in his appointment of Antony Blinken as Secretary of State, though it’s thought that Cuomo is still in contention for the position of Attorney General.
“There’s never been an openly bisexual Attorney General,” the source insists. “Kissinger implied he was a swinger, but he never said anything about swinging that way. Let’s knock open that door.”
While Cuomo does not feel like he needs to make such an announcement, the source explains that “he would be totally fine with it” and would be happy to serve in Biden’s cabinet in an outwardly prideful way.
Although he has identified publicly as straight for most of his career, Cuomo is said to have been “loosening up” since his separation from his longtime girlfriend, Sandra Lee — who has vowed “to always protect” Cuomo despite their separation. He’s even appeared at press conferences in polo shirts that flatter fresh nipple piercings.
It’s widely rumored that he has been exploring the complicated world of leather and has been secretly dating Norweigen billionaire Stein Erik Hagen, the chairman of an Oslo-based consumer products conglomerate. The Chronicle is unable to confirm the veracity of those rumors.
Hagen has three children from his first marriage and a son from a later relationship. In October 2015, Hagen came out on the Norwegian-Swedish talk show Skavlan and said that his ex-wives and family have known about his bisexuality for many years.
