Courtney, who is also known as Shane Jenek, has been open in the past about her attraction to more than one gender.
‘I’ve seen attraction manifest itself in so many fascinating ways. Lots of straight-identifying men have been attracted to me as Courtney,’ the star disclosed.
‘I’ve also had experiences as Shane with men who identify as straight. I’ve had boyfriends I’ve dated whom I met as Courtney, but then dated as Shane. Courtney can certainly act as a glamorous stepping stone across the pond.’
The Bi Life: Courtney hosted The Bi Life, a dating show for people whose sexuality is more broad than those featured in the more traditional dating shows like The Bachelor
‘When it came to having sex with men, there was no education. There were no queer role models, no gay role models, no gay people on television. Nothing’
In fact, Courtney revealed she was naïve about sexual health, having had no formal sex education.
‘When I first had sex with a man, I was 18 and I thought, ”Well, I’m not going to get pregnant, and he’s not going to get pregnant, so we obviously don’t need condoms”,’ she told the publication.
‘It was friends who had to tell me, ”Ah, there are things other than babies you can catch from having sex without a condom”.’
Courtney won Britain’s Celebrity Big Brother in 2018 and also appeared on the American reality TV series RuPaul’s Drag Race where she spoke about having sex in and out of drag.
