"I was always supportive of my sister and the rest of the LBGTQ+ community, but often feared the judgment of others," Sander, 24, revealed before opening up about his own struggle with rumors about his sexuality.

"People would continuously question my sexuality for being an activist and bullied me," he wrote in Tuesday's post. "Once I finally looked myself in the mirror and realized that I was so passionate about Allyship because it truly saves lives and recognized that my story as an ally to my transgender sister can relate to so many people."

He also shared the statistic that "95% of the population doesn't identify as LGBTQ+ and therefore can be allies."

"I started not caring what other people think and started being the activist I was passionate about being," he added in the heartfelt message.

Following the episode's airing, Sander took to Instagram to further reflect on the experience, confessing: "Years ago, I didn't feel comfortable even discussing that one of my first kisses was a transwoman." But now, "I don't care what others think or say," he insisted.

"I will date whomever I want, always be honest about my feelings, and if there's a potential spark, I will see where it goes with any woman," he concluded at the time.
