Singer Ryan Beatty Comes Out As A “Raging Homosexual”

by Dan Tracer June 29, 2016


It’s one thing to come out of the closet, but declaring you’re a “raging homosexual” takes a special kind of self love — one that singer Ryan Beatty has clearly found.

The 20-year-old “Like Me Or Not” singer made the announcement on Instagram, the chosen medium for breaking news for the under 25 crowd.

“proud to be a raging homosexual,” Beatty wrote, sharing a photo of a couple with a pink balloon that says “Gay Power.”

“it’s taken 20 years of suffocating in the closet for me to become comfortable enough to say it,” he added. “but now I can finally breathe. i did it!”

Here’s the Insta-reveal:

But not to let other social media outlets feel neglected, he took to Twitter a few hours later to add some some color commentary:

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

In a later tweet, he reiterated, “I’m so happy I’m gay.”

Beatty gained traction in 2012 with his first EP, Because Of You, and toured with Cody Simpson that same year.

He’s releasing his new single “Passion” on July 1.
