It's 2013 ...i'm surprised there are people still supporting living in the closet. It's not good for those living that way (you never hear anyone saying they regret being open about their sexuality) and it's bad for others. The huge number of people who have been honest about their sexuality is the reason being gay in this country isn't the nightmare it was decades ago. No-one is asking him to be a spokesman or role model... just to be honest. The irony in Michael Ball's case is before he became famous he was open about his sexuality.
I'm not advocating people being in the closet. I am supporting someone that likes to keep his private life private.
What possible interest is it to anyone who Michael Ball sleeps with and why do we have a right to know?
