What was growing up like for you?
Man growing up for me was cool, I always was the crazy child who like to go bike riding but inside I like boys but paid it no mind.. I have a family of three and we all use to get on each other nerves because we all are different ....
Did you find it difficult to come out to your family?
As far as my family knowing I guess I let them have to find out for themselves.. Me and moms had a sit down and she was shocked because I went from having girlfriends but then it went from having girlfriends to have alot of strange looking men . So moms wanted to know then I told her .. Now shes okay with it but then again still to this day its still a problem so she in and out about .. as far as my sister and Bro they don't care they still love me no matter what and they treat me no differently.. Now my dad its kinda don't ask don't tell he got his own family to worry about to raise right so as far as for me I'm my own person
Do you feel like people changed towards you when you came out?
My Cousin did and my bestfriends also did as well cause they don't understand how I went from always having girls in my face to being gay.. I mean they act as if i would try them or what ever so we departed ... it hurts but o well no one knows the truth with the girls i been with.. I always was put in friend zone
What made you choose the stage name Roman?
Crazy u ask that ... Me and my tourer Rudebwy Came up with it .. He felt it was sexy and it remind him of passion .. People always ask did it come from Nikki Minaj but naw because I'm not crazy it has two different meanings ...... But again I like what she doing with it so I'm me and she is she lmao
What made you decide to start your career in exotic dancing?
I saw it was hmmm like easy money but yet it has its tricks and trades to it .. u cant just go out there and shake youur ass.. U gotta be sexy , have talent and be a go getter .. So with me it was hard because I'm not the average dancer as far as looks .. I'm not big and toned.. so I had to find my own way of standing out .. So I discovered the pole and start doing tricks and learning thing from YouTube and that what made Roman name pop... It does me a great pleasure to see other dancer liking what i do and trying to be like me .. it feel good to know when I come around I make them work harder ..but I'm just a ball in my own court and I grabs attentions
