Nothing like a good coming out on National Coming Out Day!

Aaron Rogers, a radio DJ at Madison, Wisconsin's Z-104 told his listeners yesterday that he would now be living his life as an openly gay man.

Said Rogers to his listeners:

"For anyone listening right now, know that you are not alone and that it's okay to feel the way that you do. Life is very short. Know that  you are loved, appreciated, and respected by more people than you realize. It really does get better, and you have my support always."

Watch his coming out, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Good for you Aaron... you're brave and it will make a huge difference in the lives of LGBT youth and adults. You probably saved a few young lives just by doing this!

  3. Lord. I missed the "DJ". I thought it was the Packers' quarterback coming out.

    Well, DJ Aaron is probably even better :-)

  9. The Packers' quarterback is Aaron Rodgers, not Aaron Rogers.

    Congratulations Aaron!

  13. Aaron if you don't have an adoring boyfriend right now you're going to have one in about ten immediate minutes. Consider it done.

  14. Congratulations! Hopefully it will inspire lots of people in and around Madison, to realize it is natural and that even more of you down in the US will join us up here in Canada where it has been a "non-issue" for years. Another step closer to the 21st Century in US.

  15. Gosh he's cute. And she's supportive. But what on earth is she doing SCREAMING multiple times? If she did that on a regular basis, I'd be complaining to the station!

  16. @Billy: I assume that's the station's format.

  17. Welcome to the World of the Out. It's a damn good place to be. Well done, tasteful and direct. I hope and trust your listeners will respond well, though a few boogers will talk smack. Let 'em talk, honey, they just jealous. Wahoo!

  18. It does not diminish Aaron Rogers' courage to point out that Madison is a very open and affirming city. When the "Rev." Phelps came to Madison, several years ago, to protest some event, yard signs appeared everywhere in town saying, "Madison supports its gay and lesbian community." I'm really proud to live here.
