Pop singer Mika comes out as gay (again)

A bit surprising that this in the news again, but apparently Mika being gay was still news to the general population. So he is outing himself again this month in Instinct magazine.

He told Instinct: ‘If you ask me am I gay, I say yeah. Are these songs about my relationship with a man? I say yeah.

‘And it’s only through my music that I’ve found the strength to come to terms with my sexuality beyond the context of just my lyrics. This is my real life.’

The interview coincides with the unveiling of Mika’s third album The Origin of Love, released in the UK on 16 September.

He has sold over 8 million records and achieved Gold or Platinum certifications in 32 countries worldwide across his previous two albums Life in Cartoon Motion and The Boy Who Knew Too Much.

Mika already came out last year, but this was ignored and the year before he came out as bisexual in Dutch magazine Gay and Night and the News of the World, but was unhappy about this later.

My name is Dannii Cohen, I am an author, psychologist, spiritual worker, LGTB Rights campaigner and blogger/columnist with a background in freelance journalism. I am also a genderqueer/bigender. I have been part of the LGBT world for (literally!!) all my life and have been a campaigner for many years, mainly in my capacity as a writer. I have also been part of the British comedy world since the late 90's. First as a stand up, then as a writer. I stopped for some time for personal reasons, but realised I missed it a lot. At the moment I've begun to create a comedy sketch show online called: The Lonely Man Guide. It is still very much in it's infancy. My motto: When you reach out to people through the written word, you might just reach that certain person who needs to hear the words you have written. So if I can give hope or joy to someone, then that is all that matters.
