“When I was 21 I was completely catatonic and committed to a psychiatric ward,” he wrote. “When I was 22 I tried taking my own life. At 23 I underwent electroshock therapy. Later that year I harnessed every bit of strength I had and applied to law school. At 25 I graduated law school top of my class. By 30 I became one of the most followed mental health advocates online and one of the top creators on [OnlyFans]. At almost 36, life is pretty dang near perfect. Never, ever give up. Your story isn’t written yet. Every chapter is leading to a more perfect ending. I promise.”
Seiter starred on The Bachelorette’s 11th season in 2015. He came out as gay and was on the cover of Out magazine.
“I believe my upbringing, in the homeschooled Christian niche that we were brought up in, stayed with me, both consciously and unconsciously, for years after leaving home for college,” he told Instinct in June. “I always knew as an early teen I was different s*xually, I just don’t think I had the vocabulary to articulate what the difference was.”
