Duncan James Reveals the Burden of Hiding His Sexuality
Former ‘Blue’ singer, Duncan James, who initially came out as bisexual in 2009 and now as gay, has revealed he hid his sexuality for years because he wanted acceptance from his friends, family and colleagues.
In a candid chat on the recent episode of British panel show ‘Loose Women’, Duncan admitted “it’s something I wasn’t comfortable sharing with the world. I decided to do it because it was the right thing to do.
“After years of hiding things I wanted to be who I am. I wanted acceptance. I carried this burden for so many years. I was worried about what fans, family, friends, would think. I was living a lie… It was one of the best things I ever did.”
