For more than 20 years, Bruce Downer was married to the mother of his two children. During that time, though, the doting dad was hiding a deep secret that had the potential to tear his family apart. Yet while Bruce knew that the truth would change everything, he felt there was no other option but to live his own life. And it turns out that his wife was harboring a shocking revelation of her own, too.
In the end, Bruce made the tough decision to come out as gay to his unsuspecting spouse – little suspecting that she also had something she needed to get off her chest. And it was only when both husband and wife came clean that they each found happiness as their authentic selves.
Bruce hails from the city of Middletown in central Connecticut. And while he once studied business management at Post University in CT, it seems that he has since found his calling in nursing, training for the profession at Goodwin College and The University of Texas at Arlington.
