Watch: Gay Mormon Comes Out to His Father on 'The Voice'


On this week's broadcast of the new singing competition The Voice, Idahoan Tyler Robinson came out to his father for the first time before singing a rendition of "Hey, Soul Sister".

Said Robinson: "My dad and I don't have the best relationship. He hasn't been supportive of my music. Also, my father does not know that I am gay. I haven't actually told him yet. I guess he knows now."


(via the advocate, which notes that Robinson is one of four openly gay contestants competing)

  2. Lankyguy, that's exactly what I said. I was watching with my roommate, and my jaw just dropped. No matter how rocky the relationship, no one should find out their is gay on national tv.

    It reminds me of that episode of the Cosby Show when Vanessa brought home her fiance after never mentioning him to her parents, and they were pissed. Cliff said, you may be a very nice guy, but you have to realize that Vanessa brought you over to us like a nice, juicy steak...served on a garbage can lid.

  3. I’m curious to find out what blog platform you are working with? I’m having some small security issues with my latest blog and I’d like to find something more safe. Do you have any recommendations?
