Clay Aiken: I'm Gay (People Magazine Cover)

American Idol favorite Clay Aiken has finally come out as a gay man.

“Yes, I’m gay,” he tells People. “I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things.”

The 29-year-old Idol alum is on the mag’s cover with newborn son Parker.

In May, it was announced that Clay had given his sperm by artificial insemination to pal Jaymes Foster, sister of David Foster and Clay’s producer.

In July 2006, boybander Lance Bass also appeared on the cover of People with his own “I’M GAY” issue.

Best wishes to Clay and his bundle of joy Parker!

  • mike23333

  • Jules

    Awww, Parker is adorable!

  • lanolin…like sheep’s wool

    I always have found it amusing that those who “come out” of the closet are those who were never really in the closet to begin with.

    Having said that, I commend Clay for his choice to come clean about his sexuality and I wish him the best as he raises his new son!

  • tia

    uh oh wonder what the Claymates will do now ? LOL

  • Aleksandra

    good for him…best of luck :)

  • Katie

    Bet he will be a good father cuz he wants to be honest about his life.
    He will teach his son to accept himself as he is and not try to be whom others expect him to be. Bravo to Clay!

    Katie

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    ..`bōut timɛ the faggōt camē out with it.

    not like the world didn’t already know the truth..

  • Paolo

    Well even though most people suspected it, he still was in the closet since he had denied it time and time again in the past.

  • rae

    I ALWAYS THOUGHT HE LOOKS SO GAY, but i never expect him to be actually gay. this is shocking for me in a way

  • Diana

    Good for him. Now if only John Mayer would come out. Why did Clay have to wait until he had a baby in front of him before telling the truth. It’s as though he is hiding behind the baby.

  • iprincessamanda

    DUH!!!!!

    Cute kid

  • Yum!

    Now I’d love to hear from all the doubters and haters on this site that bitched and moaned when I and others stated that we KNEW he was gay because we work in the entertainment industry and all you midwestern fools said we were just “being mean.”

    Wake up people!!!! He is just one of many other gays in Hollywood – think Travolta, Ricky Martin, Wentworth Miller, etc… When you don’t know what you are talking about then shut the H-E-L-L up you idiots!!!

  • me

    Now, I respect him for being truthful, unlike some 46 year old actor with a big nose, chicklet teeth, and a dumb beard.

  • laurie

    NO SH*T…..

  • Yum!

    And you all tried to vilify Perez when he printed the pix of Clay talking online with guys and Clay said it wasn’t him. Really?? Looks like Perez was right.

    BTW: he was supposed to do this cover almost a year ago, coming out and he pulled it at the very last minute cause he wasn’t ready. My friend works at People and the interview was done and ready to go to print but Clay freaked out and begged to wait.
