Mike Parrow // Coming Out as a Gay Professional Wrestler

This is Mike Parrow’s Journey so far in life. He is a independent professional wrestler who struggled with his sexuality most of his adult life. After meeting the love of his life, Morgan, he revealed to his friends and family that he was gay.

In this short documentary Mike talks about becoming a wrestler, finding a home in Orlando, the tragedy of Pulse Nightclub, and being a role model for other athletes struggling with their sexuality.

The goal with this project is to highlight other athletes in the LGBTQ community.

  1. Saw this guy on MLW first, he is an absolute monster, has a lot of potential. Just one thing in two segments you put over the WWE for their pro LGBT PR stunts, because that's what it is a pr stunt, and the WWE are the same company that will gladly take a bunch of money from a government which punishes, according to them, the crime of homosexuality with punishments ranging from fines, floggings, to life in prison, death, and torture just thought I'd mention that.

  2. Amazing story that many of us can relate to and it is something that needs to be shared as often as possible to help those who go through this battle. Continue to spread the love…

  3. Can I just say that, as awesome as this documentary was, his parents reactions were just as awesome, they still loved him and they understood, that's such a cool thing to hear and I'm happy that Parrow's happy with his life.

  4. As a pro wrestling fan and a member of the gay community this film and Mike's story means the world to me! It was very well done and I am so happy this is being told! Bravo Mike & Kenny!

  5. Beautifully done, absolutely fantastic. but I have one gripe. The line that wrestling is at the forefront of social change is complete and utter bullshit. I have and always will be a wrestling fan, but it has been and probably will continue to be 10 years behind the social norm.

  6. This has to be one of the most awe-inspiring documentaries that I have ever seen Kenny! The impact and passion that mike has for the wrestling business is incredible. Love what he has done for EVOLVE with The End! 🤙🏻
