Clay Aiken’s Gay Confession: The Aftermath

September 24th, 2008 Posted in Breaking News

Mini-van moms everywhere are no doubt still in shock over Clay Aiken’s confession that he plays for the other team.

PEOPLE mag has released more details regarding their new cover story.

Clay says he realizes the Claymates may be in shock saying, “Whether it be having a child out of wedlock, or whether it be simply being a homosexual, it’s going to be a lot.”

“I’ve never intended to lie to anybody at all…. But if they leave, I don’t want them to leave hating me.”

Clay says he felt compelled to come out now that he was a son.

He explains, “It was the first decision I made as a father. I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn’t raised that way, and I’m not going to raise a child to do that.”

The 29-year-old born-again Christian says he came out to his mother four years ago when his brother was deployed to Iraq.

He says, “I started crying in the car. I don’t know why I started thinking about it … I just started bawling. She made me pull over the car and it just came out.”

As far as his mom’s reaction he says, “She started crying. She was obviously somewhat stunned. But she was very supportive and very comforting. She still struggles with things quite a bit, but she’s come a long way.”

Regarding his own son, Clay adds, “I have no idea if he’ll be gay or straight. It’s not something I’ll have anything to do with, or that he’ll have anything to do with. It’s already probably up inside the code there … No matter what the situation you’re in, if you’re raised in a loving environment, that’s the most important thing.”
