Daddy Clay Aiken has emerged from all his evasions and lies and come clean, as it were, in a People cover story about his being a gay. Yay, gay Clay! Maybe my own urgings had a little something to do with this, not only here at the Voice, but in my Out cover story last year about “glass closet” celebs like Clay who needed to stop the bullshit and send some shards flying.
But enough about me. I was curious to know what John Paulus, who had that famous online hookup with Clay and even kept the cumrag, had to say about all this, so I checked his blog and damn—he’s nice about it! No more jokes! No more attacks! No more recriminations! Attention, Hollywood. That’s what happens when you come out.
