Tortorella said at an American Express and the Infaturation blog New York City Pride week event that he’s sexually “fluid,” explaining, “I’ve never been in any sort of closet … I was never really in the house,” according to Page Six.
“I think it’s one thing to hide … and it’s one thing to come out of the closet in a public statement … But I’ve always done me and never been shy … and have been vocal about it,” Tortorella, 27, said.
The actor, who portrays Josh on the TV Land comedy, said that while he’s currently dating a woman, “it’s just a fluidity … we’re all kind of moving into this one situation.”

Earlier this month, Tortorella expanded on the topic while appearing on podcast The Drop-In with Will Malnati.
“I like to think that I’m label-less of sorts,” he shared. “I fit into a bunch of different boxes but I don’t check off all the things for different boxes.”
He continued, “I don’t see the world as gender binary, right? Man. woman. There’s like a whole spectrum of people who fit into all of it and I’ve dated a lot of them. And it’s not about sex for me. It’s about being totally, emotionally connected to somebody.
Tortorella concluded that his “ability” to love someone is not dependent on what is “between [their] legs.”
