From The Hot Mess Known As X Factor
What an amazing thing is happening on The X Factor, UK version. Jaymi Hensley, a member of this year's last remaining group, boyband Union J, has come out publicly, and the reaction of the group's fans, largely teenage girls, is one of... joy! O brave new world, That has such people in't!
"I got a tweet from a boy who must have been 13 or 14 asking if the rumors that I was gay were true. He said he really wished I could be out because he didn't have anyone to look up to and was finding it really hard to fit in and tell his parents. I was that kid at 14, and I really wish I had someone to say it was OK to be pictured on a red carpet with a guy and be gay in a boyband."
