Jonathan Knight Recalls “Pressure” to Hide Sexuality and Talks About His Fertility Journey

Jonathan Knight (NKOTB / Farmhouse Fixer) joined his friend Lance Bass on his podcast “Frosted Tips”, where he revealed in detail how he was pressured to hide his sexuality in the late 90s and talked about the fertility journey he has been taking with his husband Harley Rodriguez.

During the first era of the New Kids On The Block (1988-1994), Jonathan Knight felt pressure to hide his sexuality as he was advised not to “say anything” about being gay.

The 54-year-old, host of HGTV’s Farmhouse Fixer, went on to describe the anxiety he experienced at the time.

Jonathan Knight was the first member of the band to leave in 1994. The New Kids On The Block reunited on 2008, and since then they have been touring, selling out arenas and cruising with their fans on the successful NKOTB cruise.
