As she revealed initially on the WWE NXT Instagram account via its stories feature and as shared here by the NXT Twitter:
A member of the community and an ally. Thank you for sharing this with us, Toni Storm. We couldn’t be more proud. #Pride #PrideMonth #WeAreNXT— WWE NXT (@WWENXT) June 22, 2021

“So, when it was announced that I would be taking over the Instagram for Pride month, I noticed a lot of people were like ‘Toni, are you just an ally? Are you in the community? What’s going on over here?’ Well, I guess now’s the time to say it — both. I am an ally and I can’t exactly say that I’m straight. I’m bi, and it feels good to say. It’s something I’ve been really comfortable with for a long time, I just never really expressed it. I don’t know, I just never really found the right time. It’s Pride month and I’m on your Instagram so… now’s a good time I guess.”
It’s a great thing when anyone feels good enough to live their truth. It’s also great that WWE/NXT is publicly showing support for it. Let’s hope the community continues to make her, and anyone else struggling with doing the same, comfortable enough to do just that.
