Singer Nick Deutsch Comes Out, Shares His Story of Heartbreak in Powerful 'Run' Music Video: WATCH

Deutsch

New York based singer/songwriter Nick Deutsch is taking a big step both personally and professionally with the release of the music video for "Run," the lead single off his EP Crazy Ride. In it, Deutsch chronicles the heartbreak he felt in the lead-up to and aftermath of a relationship breakup with another man.  

Check out the music video, AFTER THE JUMP...

Deutsch has also written a blog post on his website about why he felt it was important to come out as member of the LGBTQ community with the video's release: 

I believe that regardless of career, being open is still very much a big deal, although I do appreciate and empathize with the over-arching view that “it’s no longer a big deal to be gay.” Even with Sam Smith sitting tall at the billboard top ten, we are sorely in need of supportive voices to counter the awful statistics and narratives that have historically plagued the LGBTQ community. It feels ridiculous to consider portraying myself as anything but confident with who I am as a gay man, especially within the wider context of the enormous social changes that have occurred.

  Crazy rideBecause I’m blessed to be in a position to have a voice, I consider it an honor to be different. The deeply understood reality of this quick, short life has resolved me to live it on my terms and not be ignorant to the reality that most of human suffering is tied to flexible beliefs. I’m not pushing my sexuality in anyone’s face as much as I’m being who I am. I’m not a gay songwriter as much as I’m a songwriter who happens to be gay. In regards to “Run,” I put a male actor in my video because the song was written about one. I fell in love with a boy and got my heart broken, so that’s what you’ll see.

British Reality Star Charlie King Comes Out as Gay on UK Talk Show: VIDEO

King

Charlie King, one of the former stars of British reality TV show The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE - which also stars Dan Osborne) came out of the closet during a live interview on ITV's talk show This Morning. TOWIE has been compared to The Hills and Jersey Shore.

Said King:

"I feel that I'm ready now. I know that the time is now. Anybody that knows me knows that I've come off of The Only Way is Essex, and on that show they followed my storyline which was very much about that subject because I never really knew where I belonged and never really knew where I fitted in and it was something I had to address and it's taken me a good few years to really get here now and be able to say I'm Charlie, I'm 29 years old, I'm a gay man, and I'm very comfortable with that."

Watch part of King's coming out interview, as well as a clip from last year's season of the show in which he denies being gay, AFTER THE JUMP...

Raven-Symoné: 'I Don't Want to be Labeled Gay, I Want to be Labeled a Human Who Loves Humans' - VIDEO

Raven

On Sunday's Where Are They Now, Oprah sat down with Raven-Symonè and asked the Cosby Show actress whether her tweet last year about how she could "finally get married" following the Supreme Court's repeal of DOMA was her way of coming out as gay.

Rather than put a label on her sexuality, Raven told Oprah she'd prefer to be known as a "human who loves humans" 

Raven2"That was my way of saying I'm proud of the country, but I will say I'm in an amazing, happy relationship with my partner - a woman. And on the other side, my mother and people in my family they've taught me to keep my personal life to myself as much as possible. So I try my best to hold the fence where I can, but I'm proud to be who I am and what I am."
