“Proud to be a raging homosexual. It’s taken 20 years of suffocating in the closet for me to become comfortable enough to say it, but now I can finally breathe.”

–Singer Ryan Beatty, in an Instagram post. Beatty rose to fame on YouTube before releasing his debut EP Because of You in 2012, which reached the top of the iTunes charts.

After announcing his sexuality on Instagram, Beatty took to Twitter to continue expressing how good he felt about coming out.

The announcement comes as he prepares to release his new single, “Passion.” (Cynical readers will note the timeliness of his coming out.)
