Above, a gallery of Renfree hotness
Apparently, he was IDed as the friend of Tom Daley's who had encouraged Daley to come out, and in the process, was called a "gay ex-popstar" in the press.
I imagine this was quite a shock for someone who's kept a relatively low profile since his kiddie-oriented pop group ceased to exist nearly a decade ago.
But Renfree tells Attitude (March 2014):
"When I saw that front page—'says gay ex-popstar'—that was a bit of a wake-up call. I've never really seen that sentence on something I'm reading that everyone else in the country is reading. Since being in the band, I went straight back to college. I could have gone on living as if I was Aaron from S Club Juniors but I literally stripped that off me and went back to college...I'm actually proud of doing this piece in Attitude. There was a time I never thought I'd be opening up and speaking publicly about my sexuality. So it's an achievement for me and it's so nice to be proud of who I am."
He sounds—and looks—lovely! Aaron is looking to continue in his career as a dancer/choreographer.
"Out of control" hot, anyway. Now that more and more public figures are on the record as gay, more and more of them are downright hot. In the past, we've had to drool over straights and closet cases, but we have a huge array of hugely hot guys who are actually gay to now lust over. (Of course, their being gay means we stand a chance in hell with them. Right? Right?)
Case in point: Adorable Michael Sam, who should be getting drafted into the NFL, is not only out, he's photographed himself with Not-So-Little Michael about half out. (Work Unfriendly)

The most important thing to have is as many people as possible out of the closet as gay, bi, curious, transgender, questioning, asexual or straight, because that information destigmatizes the categories that are less dominant in our culture. But having gay figures who are also sex objects performs the function of further normalizing what gay is—it's not just about sex, but it's also not just a political declaration. The big picture is what it's about, and no facet of that picture should be left...out.
Who are the openly gay public figures you think are also superhot? I'm curious about your taste.

Just thought about this guy the other day, and lo and behold, Oprah Winfrey is here with an update.
Oprah's Where Are They Now? series catches up with pro bodybuilder Bob Paris, who came out as gay in the late '80s, a time when coming out as gay was unheard of in any sporting field—and was rare in any facet of public life.
Matthew Pillsbury's Nate and Me is an exhibition chronicling his first loving relationship with a man:
"Matthew Pillsbury had already begun shooting his Screen Lives series—from which 10 of the 11 images in this exhibition are drawn—when, in 2004, at the age of 30, he met and fell in love with Nathan Noland, and consequently came out as a gay man. The series started out as an examination of the ways that technology was altering the lives of Pillsbury’s closest friends, but when he and Noland got together that examination turned inward and Pillsbury began to make pictures representing his own life and newfound sexuality."
Interesting images; very dream-like.

UPDATE: Via a third party, Katz is denying he ever did an NE interview and is branding their story a "vulgar and disgusting lie." Legal action is promised. Will be fascinating to see if NE has any proof of the quotes or of the true nature of the relationship. NE isn't stupid; would it really just make up the entire thing and expect to get away with it? I'll say it again: Bizarre.
