Bromstad revealed in 2012 that he came out as gay in the 90s at the age of 22. This information, however, did very little to save him from what was coming.

In 2013, the television personality hosted an event for Salvation Army, leading to an uproar among his fans who accused the institution of promoting anti-gay views.

Taking to his social media page, Bromstad explained that the tattoo is symbolic, adding that it signifies freedom, happiness, and much more.

In addition to the LGBTQ flag tattoo, Bomstad also has tattoos covering his chest, shoulder, triceps, biceps, abdomen, thighs, and calves. And it does not look like he is done getting more inks!



Bromstad was in a long-term relationship with police officer Jeffrey Glasko for over a decade. They dated from 2004 to 2015.

Following their breakup, Glasko reportedly filed a lawsuit against Bromstad, whom he accused of leaving him emotionally and financially devasted.
