Burbank, CA (PRWEB) January 20, 2006
Exclusively on Q Television Network’s (See OTCBB Other: QBID), “Brunch” with Honey Labrador and Scott Withers, pop star Gioia Bruno declared that she has had relationships with women as well as men. It has long been rumored that the sexy dance diva dabbles. Gioia, the former lead singer of Exposé, who currently headlines numerous gay prides, club events and parties, confirmed the rumors to be completely true, LIVE on “Brunch.” The revelation came just before Gioia broke out into her new pop singles, “That’s Life” and “Why Did You Call Me?”
“I never wanted to put a label on myself but, yes, I have dated women,” said Gioia. “It’s about the person and what’s in their soul. Right now, I am dating a man, but hey, I can still look at the girls. I think everybody’s got a little queer in them.”

“Gioia has long been a huge supporter of the GLBT community,” said Scott Withers, Host of “Brunch” and EVP of Q Television Network. “It is a great honor to have a celebrity, of Gioia’s caliber, feel comfortable enough on our network to “come out” and talk about this personal topic with us.”
