Greyson’s Gay

milkboys Music & Dance, News 15 Comments

Greyson Chance first made waves in public with an amazingly accomplished cover of “Paparazzi” by Lady Gaga, which went viral after he performed it for Ellen DeGeneres at the age of 12.

Today, Greyson has announced on Instagram that he’s gay, and explains why it took him a bit of time to acknowledge his sexuality.

“I came to fully recognize that I was gay when I was sixteen,” he writes. “I decided not to publicize my sexuality largely due to a matter of privacy, as I was still trying to find comfort and confidence within my own skin.” He also explained his perspective that his sexuality wasn’t necessarily the most interesting topic of conversation: “I always found conversations regarding music, politics, art, books — and the greatness of Nas’ catalog —to be far more interesting than what type of guy I was into. This is still true today.”

He changed his mind after reading an inspirational message from one of his fans, which made him realize the importance of LGBTQ visibility — even if you have to find it on your own terms.

“I encourage anyone who is navigating their sexuality to devote as much time as they need to the process of finding self-confidence, self-acceptance, and self-love,” he says. “Hell, for me, it took years to write this message.”

The decision to write this came after I received a message from a brave individual. Such message inspired me to shed light on an aspect of my private life which I have kept distant from my career in music. I came to fully recognize that I was gay when I was sixteen. I decided not to publicize my sexuality largely due to a matter of privacy, as I was still trying to find comfort and confidence within my own skin. Further, I always found conversations regarding music, politics, art, books – and the greatness of Nas’ catalog – to be far more interesting than what type of guy I was into. This is still true today. While this message is most definitely overdue, I encourage anyone who is navigating their sexuality to devote as much time as they need to the process of finding self-confidence, self-acceptance, and self-love. Hell, for me, it took years to write this message. Nevertheless, I figured now was the time to let a few more friends know that I am happy, I am here for you, and I am proud of who I am. Cheers -G

Singer Tom Goss gives Dusty Springfield’s classic tune “Son of a Preacher Man” a surprising queer twist in this music video. The video tells the story of the sweet-talkin’ teenage son of an anti-gay preacher who falls in love with another teenager in his dad’s congregation…

The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 is history. Salvador Sabral won the ESC for Portugal, beating Bulgaria and Moldova in the finals. Belgium came in fourth ahead of Sweden in fifth place. You can check out the full results here.

I wasn’t impressed by Sabral’s initial performance but the duet of the winning song with his sister and producer Luisa was actually quite nice. You can listen to the song on YouTube.

Probably more interesting to the audience of this blog were the two 17-year-old contestants though ;) Isaiah Firebrace was the first Aboriginal male to represent Australia at the ESC and he did quite well as you can see and hear below. Australia had a second moment of (questionable) glory later on by the way… click here to see it, slightly NSFW ;)

Super sweet too: Bulgaria’s entry Kristian Kostov with his aptly titled song Beautiful Mess which you can also check out below.

His song wasn’t exactly revolutionary but he’s such a bundle of cuteness and charisma that it’s incredibly hard not to root for him. I wish I could find the little intro/image film they played before his performance; if anyone can get their hands on it, please share it in the comments! This ins’t the one, but it’s still very cute.

From the music, over the plot, to the fake guitar playing, there are many things in this videos that aren’t great. But some cute boys sure make up for a lot :p

This wild dream below is a Swedish one. He doesn’t only have a nice voice and cute face it’s also kinda fun to see him grow into a fierce baby queer through his YouTube and Instagram. Those clickbait video thumbs [Slightly NSFW] though…
