Sonya Deville is out and proud! But it hasn't always been this way.
The WWE trailblazer celebrates herself and her identity in this happy clip from Tuesday's new Total Divas, which finds the athlete surrounded by loved ones on a namesake float in Ft. Lauderdale's Pride Parade—the first of its kind devised in partnership with the wrestling organization.
And as excited as she is to dance the afternoon away alongside family, friends and colleagues (Divas co-star Carmella and new-ish girlfriend Arianna are both in attendance), Sonya takes a minute beforehand to acknowledge how far she's come to get here.
"Three years ago today, I wasn't even openly gay. And nobody except for my mom and my dad knew," she says, leading a toast from atop the glittery black-and-rainbow patterned float—designed in Sonya's image by her entourage, who teamed up to decorate while she recovered from last episode's shoulder injury—ahead of the day's festivities.
