Boyzone's Stephen Gately Dead at 33

Stephen Gately, the 33-year-old lead singer of Irish boy band Boyzone, died on Saturday (October 10) on the Spanish island of Majorca, where he was vacationing with his husband Andrew Cowles (inset).

According to UK’s NOTW, “the gay singer’s coming out ten years ago caused a sensation in the pop music world. .. He married [Cowles] in a civil union in March 2006. His manager Louis Walsh was unaware of Stephen‘s sexuality when he selected him for the band and has said that, had he known, he would have thought twice before picking him, citing that “‘It wasn’t cool then to have a gay guy in a band.’”
