Tiger King star Carole Baskin has had two husbands but says she could have just easily married a woman. The big cat saver says she identifies as bise*ual, despite her relationships with men.
“I have always considered myself to be bise*ual, even though I’ve never had a wife. I could just as easily have a wife as a husband as far as the way I feel about ‘us,’” she explained, referring to humans in general.
Carole made the big announcement during a video interview with PinkNews.The 59-year-old big cat lover continued, “I think we’re all one…I just don’t see us being different genders or different colors or different anything. It’s not a matter of what your se*ual preferences are.”
Carole has been married to husband Howard Baskin since 2004. Prior to that, she was wed to millionaire first husband Don Lewis from 1991 through 2002.
He mysteriously disappeared on August 19, 1997, and was declared legally de*d five years later, even though his b*dy has never been found. Dancing with the Stars contestant Carole says that she first became close to the LGBTQ community in the 1980s, through her fiance at the time.
“I was engaged to a psy*hologist, and that was his entire field, dealing with the LGBT+ community. It was during the period when A!DS was just wre-aking ha-voc around the world, and people were losing their loved ones, and so I became very close to people in that community then.”
Carole also explained that while growing up, she wasn’t into typical girly things like playing with dolls and la-cked maternal inst!ncts. She said that she was “always very male-oriented in the things I did,” explaining that she was “probably born into the wrong body” as she was such a “to-mboy.”
“I never had any mothering inst!ncts or anything. I never played with dolls. And so I always thought that there was something off there, that I couldn’t quite put my finger on,” Carole detailed. While the Tiger King himself Joe Ex-otic is an out and proud g*y man, Carole had ha*sh words for her nem*sis.
“This man is just a dev!ant in how he treats animal life and human life and that it’s all about him. It doesn’t have anything to do with the communities he may associate himself with. I think he’s an embarra*sment to the human community,” she told PinkNews. The former zoo owner is serving 22 years in fe*eral pr!son after he was found gu!lty in 2018 on two counts of hiring a h!tman to murder Carole, as well as v!olating the Endan*ered Species Act for cru*lly k!lling five of his zoo’s tigers and shipping others for sale across state lines.
