Calum Scott Goes Shirtless for 'Gay Times' Cover, His First Ever!


Calum Scott
puts his muscles on display while going shirtless for Gay Times magazine’s March 2018 issue, his first ever cover spread for a magazine!

Here’s what the 29-year-old “You Are The Reason” singer had to share with the mag:

On writing about his own life experiences: “When I was honest about myself and my feelings and especially my sexuality, it started flowing out of me like a river. I was writing about my experiences of being gay, of hiding it away, of telling my parents, coming out to the press, the circumstance where I was abandoned – all these different experiences in the hope that if I write these things and I’m honest, even if one person is like, ‘He did it and he was terrified of what people would think but had the strength, maybe I will.’ If it inspires one person, then all of those things I went through was completely worth it.”

On his hopes to be an LGBTQ role model: “My gay role models were people like Elton John, George Michael and Boy George, which I couldn’t relate to, so it made me feel even more alien. Whereas now there are so many people who are open and proud of who they are, that are more relatable.”

On embracing his sexuality: “I’m kind of glad I went through the whole experience of being abandoned and feeling very lonely, confused and upset, wishing I was straight. I had that whole, ‘If I had a straight pill, would I take it?’ I always said I would. Whereas now I would bat it out of somebody’s hands and be like, ‘Are you mad? It’s great to be gay. It’s perfect to me.’”
