Former Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum says he is bisexual


Andrew Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee, Fla., came out as bisexual in an interview with Tamron Hall on Monday.

Driving the news: « I don’t identify as gay. I identify as bisexual. I’ve never shared that publicly before, » Gillum, who was once considered a rising star in the Democratic party after his Florida gubernatorial run in 2018, told Hall.

Background: In March, Gillum was found deeply inebriated in a Florida motel room with two men, one of whom was identified as a male escort suffering a drug overdose. Gillum later issued a statement saying he planned to withdraw from public life and deal with alcoholism.

Gillum lost the incredibly close Florida governor’s race to Republican Ron DeSantis by less than half a percentage point and was widely seen as an up-and-coming political star prior to his withdrawal from public life.

Traces of a gas in Venus’ clouds could indicate some form of life may exist there, according to a study published today.

Why it matters: Scientists have been musing about the possibility that life exists in Venus’ temperate clouds for decades. If confirmed as a sign of life, the finding would open up a new era of science.

There’s now a deal on the table to let TikTok continue operating in the U.S. with the backing of a major American tech firm, potentially staving off President Trump’s plan to ban the popular Chinese-owned video app by mid-month.

Yes, but: Software giant Oracle’s proposed deal isn’t the straightforward acquisition that Microsoft had jockeyed for until falling out of the running this weekend, and the whole affair is still rife with unknowns.
