    The idea of what it means to a black man has come into question in recent years. For instance, Jaden Smith, the son of megastar Will Smith, has challenged gender norms in high-profile fashion campaigns. Now the VH1 reality series Black Ink Crew: New York will broaden the conversation in tonight’s episode. The show follows the lives of tattoo artists at a shop in New York City's Harlem neighborhood. This season a new member, Kevin Laroy (known from Ink Master on Spike TV), was introduced to the crew. Here’s where you should likely stop reading if you haven’t watched the episode, because spoilers are forthcoming.

    Kevin has caught the eye of a female tattoo artist, Young Bae. In the episode, the two of them go out on what Bae considers to be a date. Before the night is over, their date is interrupted and Kevin leaves with another person — a man. The situation catches many of the other cast members by surprise, and Kevin later ends up explaining that he is attracted to both women and men. But he has a hard time identifying as bisexual or gay.

    Kevin was born and raised in Dallas, a progressive city but still part of the Deep South, where there is stigmas associated with being LGBT. Before the episode aired, he spoke with The Advocate about about his decision to come out on television.

    Didn't know this. Good for him.

    Black Ink is doing their thing with the LGBT representation. They also had a drag queen and transgender W-T-M tell their stories,

    I just hope he doesn't become one of those "Blank Sheet of Paper" people that are gay or bisexual, but don't want to associate with gay or bisexual people or accept that he or she is gay or bisexual. I understand looking at the stereotypical stuff associated with GAY. However, being gay or bisexual and running to the neutral zone won't make you non-gay or non-bisexual, bc if you are sexually attractive to the same gender, you are not straight and the heteronormative we are born and live into will let you know that.
