Singer Aaron Carter has told his fans in a heart felt note that he’s bisexual.
Aaron Carter, who made his fame in the late 90’s as pre-teen pop singer has come out as bisexual. He recently split with his girlfriend Madison Parker, the Daily Mail reports.
His brother Nick Carter was in the super ground, Backstreet Boys.
Taking to Twitter, Aaron told his 623,000 fans, in a heartful letter, that his bisexuality did not bring him shame and he didn’t want to be a “figure of disappointment”.
He wrote that how during the earlier stages of his career he began an “experience” with a male that he had grown up with.
“To start off, I would like to say that I love each and EVERY ONE of my fans.
“There’s something I’d like to say that I feel is important for myself and my identity that has been weighing on my chest for nearly half of my life.
“This doesn’t bring me shame, just a weight and burden I have held onto for a long time that I would like lifted off of me.”
“I grew up in this entertainment industry at a very young age and when I was around 13-years-old I started to find boys and girls attractive.
“There were years that went by that I thought about it, but it wasn’t until I was 17-years-old, after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with,
“To me, music has always been my temple.
“Music will ALWAYS be what transcends all of us and myself.
“The studio has always been my safe haven.
“But the ultimate goal for me is to be satisfied.
“I never want to be a figure of disappointment,”
“The best quote to sum “I’ve never felt as though I didn’t belong, I just acted as though I did.” – Boy George.”

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.
