8

During a recent interview with Variety, WWE Superstar Sonya Deville commented on her stalking trial, wanting to do more for LGBTQ+ advocacy, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On wanting to do more for LGBTQ+ advocacy: “I really just want to be a voice for the community in sports — specifically, in the WWE. I want to let people know that their sexuality doesn’t define them and how they identify doesn’t define them. And I’m a perfect example of it.”

On the trial of the man charged of attempting to kidnap her: “So the trial hasn’t even begun yet. We’ll probably be dealing with that for the next several months. But I will definitely speak on it once it’s all legally wrapped up. There are things that I want to say that I think could help performers, and just people in general, in the future.”

On the messages she gets online: “I would say that about 70% of my fan base is part of the [queer] community somehow, some way. I get messages constantly on Instagram and Twitter and emails, just all the people always asking me like, ‘Hey, do you have any advice on how I should come out?’ Or ‘Thank you. You helped me feel OK with myself and my sexuality.’ That’s literally the reason I use my voice.”
