Cameron Hawthorn becomes one of the latest country music stars to come out.
The Country music singer, Cameron Hawthorn has used his latest music video to “Dancing In The Living Room” to reveal to his fans that he’s in a relationship with another man.
In the video, a range of couples are seen romantically dancing in their own homes and one of the couples happens to be Cameron and his partner, who join together and slow dance in their very own living room.
“I remember always thinking how special it was to dance freely with my boyfriend in the living room of our apartment,” he tells The Advocate.
“Being gay, it’s not as easy to dance as a couple in public together as it is for a straight couple. I wanted to express how special that moment is for a couple when it’s just the two of you in the privacy of your own four walls.”
Cameron joins a handful of out Country singers including, Billy Gillman and Ty Herndon who both came out in 2014. In the early 20-teens, Steve Grand made global headlines when he became the first male country singer to come out as gay.

A note from the editor.
These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.
Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.
If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.
