But he also published about his personal life, such as the freezing of his eggs, his sexuality, and his mental health, like a video entitled “Medication Sent Me Insane” (the drugs drove me crazy).
Her latest video was titled “10 reasons to have a younger boyfriend”, based on the fact that her boyfriend is eight years younger than her.
Hartridge’s last posting on Instagram was Friday, in which he talked about his reaction to a troll that asked him if he was a man because of his muscular physique.
“I’ve never adhered to social norms and I’m certainly not going to start now,” the post said.
