Clay Aiken Proclaims on People: "Yes, I'm Gay"

Clay Aiken Proclaims on People: "Yes, I'm Gay"

Clay Aiken posed with his baby son, Parker, on the cover of this week's People Magazine, opening up for the first time about his often speculated about sexuality and proclaiming, "Yes, I'm Gay". Just a few years ago Lance Bass posed with an almost identical headline and now the former American Idol runner up is ready to be a new father out of the closet. The cover also proclaims, "I cannot raise a child to lie or hide things." There will be a lot more to come when the issue comes out, but so good for Clay to have the courage to be honest and what an adorable baby boy!

Btw, i don't even like Clay that much. I didn't watch the second season of American Idol and I don't like his music (although he is a good singer and he was much better than Ruben Studdard from what I saw).

Hockey Princess - I didn't see your comment until now, but I was just saying that I'm glad Clay is being honest now because he denied it for years. That's fine if he wanted to remain in the closet for a little bit longer, but he outright lied about it. And yes, I do think people who are gay and famous should speak out about it because its not necessarily anything to be ashamed of and it helps remove the stigma surrounding homosexuality. I don't think people should force the to come out of the closet or be rude about it, but don't pretend to like girls because you want to sell more records or more movies.

So proud of Clay for coming out and being a great role model for so many people. I'm not super into his music (though man, can he sing!) but he's always seemed genuine and friendly and caring. I'm glad he is now able to live his life openly and fully. Yay Clay!

Those of you who have said 'shame on him for lying for so long', you have no idea what it's like to come out. Yes, I agree, we all knew. But you have no idea what it's like living with the fear that your family and friends (and in Clay's case fans) could all just turn their backs on you and say f-off! Hell, I was in the closet 8 years, and I hear stories like that all the time! Kudos to Clay for waiting until HE was ready, and not letting society force him to do something he wasn't ready to do!

I do not have any respect for liars!He should have been honest from the very beginning and not pose like he was "someone out of this world". I understand we are all human, we are not perfect, but the fact of the matter is that he lied and I cannot deal with that. I feel sorry for those many young innocent girls who probably are now crushed upon something that was SO OBVIOUS to begin with! On top of it all, he made himself pass by "a good Christian young man who advocates virginity" but now it is clear: he is probably virgin with women, not with men!

had to come *out* sorry for that. LOL

I second Bri's sentiment. I wish he didn't feel that he had to come, but I admire his reason. He didn't do it because of public pressure, he did it because he doesn't want his child to lie or hide things. Very honorable and a great first step as a parent. I never really liked his music, but now I admire him as a person.

Coming out is really the hardest thing I've ever had to do.I knew he was as did everyone, but it's the telling everyone that is the worst. I'm not surprised it took him a while. Congrats to him for having the courage
