She revealed that she had “repressed.” “I chose to be straight,” Sykes told Oprah during a 2013 episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter.”I remember I was in the third grade, and I told one of my brother’s girlfriend’s sisters, ‘I wish I was a boy because then I could be your boyfriend.’ She was like, ‘What!?

No, no. You do not like girls, you like boys, and that’s bad. That’s not right.’ She was much older. I just remember the way she said it and the way she looked at me.
