This may not come as a surprise, but Michael Stipe, the lead vocal of R.E.M. is indeed gay. He talked to Spin Magazine about his coming out story.
“It was super complicated for me in the ’80s. I was totally open with the band and my family and my friends and certainly the people I was sleeping with. I thought it was pretty obvious. Now I recognize that to have public figures be very open about their sexuality helps some kid somewhere out there.”
Yeah, who’d knew?
