T.J. Osborne Is So In Love With His Boyfriend Abi Ventura

T.J. Osborne's Love With Boyfriend Abi Ventura
by

It has been a year since T.J. Osborne publicly came out as gay and made history as the first queer artist signed to a major country label. In his interview with Sam Lansky for TIME magazine, the country singer bared it all – from his experiences, his reservations, and the importance of being true to oneself and speaking up for himself. And last November at the 55th annual CMA Awards, T.J. celebrated the Brothers Osborne’s fourth win as Vocal Duo of the Year with an offstage celebratory kiss with his date and boyfriend, Abi Ventura.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, T.J. confessed that he contemplated whether he should bring Abi as his date. Because even though he was out, there were still fears that sneak up. But he decided to be open in every way and celebrate his love – their love – and hopefully, it would show people that they could be who they want to be with no need to hide or change themselves in any way. 

And he did.
