Stephen Gately, 1976-2009
Very sad news this morning about the death of Boyzone singer Stephen Gately at age 33. As a gay man, I feel like I owe Stephen a huge amount for taking the groundbreaking and very brave step to come out at the height of his popularity in 1999. The world, and that industry, was very different even 10 years ago, and it took tremendous courage to do what Stephen did.
