Singer Ryan Beatty Comes Out as Gay: 'Proud to Be a Raging Homosexual'

Ryan Beatty has come out as gay in posts to his social media accounts.

The 20-year-old singer has grown his fan base over the years with his YouTube covers and released his first EP, Because of You, back in 2012. Ryan has toured with Cody Simpson and is gearing up to drop his new single “Passion” on July 1.

“proud to be a raging homosexual. it’s taken 20 years of suffocating in the closet for me to become comfortable enough to say it, but now I can finally breathe. i did it!” Ryan wrote on Instagram along with a “gay power” photo.

“i’m so happy i’m gay,” Ryan added on Twitter.

After getting messages of support from fans, friends, and family, Ryan thanked everyone for their support.

“damn. i’m so grateful to have friends and family that support me and just want me to be happy. that’s unconditional love. thank you to anyone who’s reached out to me with the supportive words. I’m so happy,” Ryan tweeted.

    Good for him. It’s not an easy thing to do.

  • Roscoe

    Damn, this is funny. He must think it is April Fools’ Day. Give this guy a prize lol.

  • RainbowCandy

    So he’s in the closet even as a baby?

  • Brandon

    I mean… good for him for admitting it but that timing couldn’t be any more obvious… Not like most people didn’t already know, but he announces it when he has a new single coming out in 3 days? Well I guess you can only publicly come out once, so might as well use it to your advantage

    To the surprise of no one.

    Its regress of the society, but brainwashed libtards like u cant get that

  • xyz

    Top? Bottom?

  • xyz

    They are so stupid they dont know what lies to come up with and they give themselves away

  • http://babybic.hu BabyBichu

    Maybe but I’m not so hard on him as it’s none of my business

  • http://babybic.hu BabyBichu

    That’s really ironic

  • Sabrina

    Who cares? Is it any of your business what others do in their bedrooms? Is your own sex life so pathetic?

  • Sabrina

    That’s great! The more people come out the better. Makes it easier for others who are scared and shows homophobes that gay and lesbian people are everywhere and won’t cease to exist just because of their hatred.

  • turbo27

    Stop it. Like no one knew.

  • turbo27

    No, but then why is this guy even bringing it up? No ones cares, even the very few people who may know him.

  • http://eternalozzie.com/ eternalozzie

    good for him :)

  • Gina

    It was written all over his face.

  • Shell

    Not the point. It still takes a lot for someone to stand up and say they are gay, pansexual etc to everyone and after reading some of the replies on this site, it’s obvious why many chose not to be honest.

    I don’t blame you for saying this, you probably don’t know him or what’s going on with his life. But I think Ryan was influenced by something that happened this week, and it has nothing to do with his single.
    A group of fans already knew about it, and they kept sending messages asking it indirectly, cause they wanted to know the truth. After a few months, he finally replied to one specific dm on twitter. The fans felt really bad because they knew they’ve crossed some lines, cause it was really personal, and tried to apologize for it. It was only a few hours before he posted that picture on insta. I’m really sure that was not the only reason, but knowing Ryan’s relationship with his fans, I’m pretty sure it was one of them. It is really unfortunate to just assume he’s doing it for fame. Ryan is not stupid. If he wanted fame, he would stay doing the same kind of music he used to do. He specially quitted doing that because that wasn’t the kind of musician he wanted to be. I’m really glad he came out. He’s starting a new phase in his life.

    No it doesn’t. Maybe 40 years ago, but not today. How about this, why does anyone need to say anything? Just live your life. People get it. Those that don’t, who needs them anyway.
