“Many people have the misconception that ‘gay’ is a certain look or trait so having a show like this really helps to break down those stereotypes”

Josh grew up in a Mormon family and it took a long time for him to come to terms with being gay. Because of this, at 24 Josh is a late bloomer when it comes to his experience. He’s never had a relationship and before the show, had never actually kissed a boy.

Josh lives in the small beachside town of Rhyl, North Wales. He’s got amazing friendships locally but jokes that it’s a nightmare when it comes to meeting guys as there’s ‘zero gay scene whatsoever.’ He gets attention on nights out, but this always comes from girls.

Josh loves to go out and is known for hitting the dance floor at his local bar. He loves thrillers, sci-fi films and he’s a massive Rihanna fan.

Josh is attracted to sporty guys with confident energy. Josh says that for him coming out has been a long time coming so he feels totally ready for I Kissed a Boy. He’s really keen to meet more gay guys around his age and learn more about gay culture. Josh jokes that his first ever kiss will ‘probably be rubbish’ but he’s got to start somewhere so says ‘bring it on!’


I Kissed A Boy launches on BBC iPlayer on Saturday 13 May at 6am and Sunday 14 May at 9pm on BBC Three.
