Struggle Jason Schanne partner Bruno Tonioli for being Gay

Bruno was raised in a Catholic family in which his sexuality was not accepted. 

He never had a girlfriend when he was young and used to bring guys home and hang out with them. From this kind of behavior, his parents must have gotten a hint about their son being gay. 

He was bullied a lot because of his sexuality while growing up as he was the only Gay in his village, so he was labeled as “the queenie guy” and “the queer” which were the worst thing to say to someone in those days in Italy. And to beat his bullies, Bruno reinvented himself. 

He changed his hairstyle, wore lasted gear, started smoking, and made friends with the best-looking girls. After that, she got famous and people stopped bullying him.

He further talked about his campaign and how it is okay to be the way one is with different shapes and sizes as a lot of people are genetically made sure.

 On a query about there being more men than women who wanted to do the campaign. 

Bruno explained why that might be in today’s magazine; a person looks like a superhero. 

People set images of the body or how a person is to be looked upon, which is impossible to attain unless one goes to the gym or be genetically predisposed.

When asked how he learned to love himself, he stated it was because he accepted the way he is and freely took a bit of risk to improvising.
