Clay Aiken Comes Out

Clay Aiken, former American Idol and current Broadway star, has publicly came out as a gay man. Citing the birth of his son last month as the inspiration for his decision, Aiken stated, "I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things".

Aiken, who returned to Monty Python's Spamalot last week and continues in the role of Sir Robin (originated by David Hyde Pierce) through January 4, will be featured on the cover of this week's People magazine (along with his seven week-old son Parker) with the statement "Yes, I'm gay" printed in bold letters, echoing Ellen DeGeneres' legendary 1997 Time magazine cover.

We here at Movie Dearest congratulate Clay Aiken on this decision and wish him well in his future career.


  1. Everyone already knew he was gay. I am glad he made his mind up and cam eout for the bennifit of himself, but where as this yound baby came from they are talking about?

  2. The baby was conceived via in vitro fertilization with his best friend, music producer Jaymes Foster.
