Rocker Hudson is a Rock Hudson

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 1-145The lead singer of the Australian band Faker, Nathan Hudson, came out over the weekend. And while he may be lesser known to American audiences, we wanted to pass along the quote he gave along with his de-closeting, as it's pretty right on:

My association with being gay was that it was bad and dark and not good for you. I had trouble finding people to look up to,”

I’m happy to talk about being gay for that kid in the suburbs who’s 15 and scared.

The only, only, only, only, ONLY way we're ever going to cut through the teen fears that we gay folks know so well is for everyone to be true to themselves and those around them. And this is especially true for celebs, whose public images have more influence than just the layperson. So thanks, Nate, for refusing to fake your reality, and instead embracing it. Had one of this gay writer's '90 grunge Gods done the same, it would've certainly made my flannel and Doc Marten-garbed existence much more reassuring. Your refusal to live a lie will surely help ease some modern adolescent's anguish.

Nathan Hudson Out! [Queerty]

Your thoughts

It's good to not only see him coming out and accepting who he is but also to say he's willing to help others with the same problems, good on ya, Nate!
