In the same video, he noted he is “a gay, Muslim, Arab, American man ...and I'm gonna take it even further: Not only am I gay, but I'm also a bottom, not only am I bottom, but I'm also a total bottom, which means I like it up you-know where” ...
The video is unique among look-at-me! vlogging installments — it is a totally real, honest assessment of the gut-wrenching time Kory had coming out even as recently as 10 years ago. Prepare to tear up, but it's ultimately uplifting ...
Greyson Chance, who performed the second best version of Lady Gaga's “Paparazzi” of all time (Gaga's was the best — still my favorite of her songs) and shot to viral fame in 2010, has come out as gay.
Even though he's just 19, he wrote — in an articulate, expressive Facebook post — his coming out was “most definitely overdue.”
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.
He went on to write:
... 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 fo ryou, and I am proud of who I am.
I covered Greyson when he was first becoming famous, which was spurred on by his signing by out role model Ellen DeGeneres, and he was always a sweetheart. It's great to read that he is out and proud.

Now? He's out.
Dekker, in response to a soft outing by Fuller (who called Dekker's agent out for not wanting Dekker's Heroes character to be gay), has posted that he is now officially, publicly out as a gay man.
He has also confirmed he is married.
I really like most of his letter, and I'm not intending to slam him, but I do have to say that to suggest people are only ready when they're ready — and yet being openly gay personally to the point that you're married can still mean not ready — is a little disingenuous. To me. In other words, I don't feel Fuller was being a dick in talking about Dekker, not even by name, in the context in which he talked about him; there's no good reason to believe Dekker would be psychologically harmed by that.
That aside, I love his message and the positive tone, even as he settles that score.
