Judas Priest Lead Singer Comes Out As Gay

Tue May 14, 2002 4:33 am

This may be old news to some.
Rob Halford, the lead singer of Judas Priest came out the closet as gay.
This takes a lot of balls considering the metal culture is such a macho driven culture.
I've seen these guys back in the 80s when they were at there peak.

Any other Priest fans here?



I support the women’s movement up and down!

Why does it take balls to come out as gay? It takes balls if your a nobody. This guy had his career, made his money, and is set for life. Not a big deal to say what most knew already.

Kroc,

because it seems that gays want awards for every single thing they do. if they go to the bathroom they had alot of courage. its pathetic.

Old news, look at that Leather Daddy outfit he's for years. And was the only heavy metal singer for years who had close-cropped hair.
NWA: Yes, we gays want awards for everything! Because award shows are fabuluous and we get to dress up! And we skip down the street and all cross-dress and are all trying to get in str8 guys pants!  Yeah sure

Hey OzarkD9S, is that why one of my ex giirlfriends got so upset with me? I used to skip when I was young (35) and energetic. She also accused me of trying to get into her pants every night. So, if I have two of the three does that make me gay?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

OMG - I just heard that Freddy Mercury was actually straight.

I must it must have taken that old leather queen some courage to pretend to be gay when he was straight all along.

I am thoroughly shocked and scandalised.

Oh my!

Old news, but still fun to imagine all those Jock fans of theirs burning their records in disgust.
Better yet, the group are a bunch of chancers from Birmingham, England, (The home of bad rock), who got big in the US somehow.
Good luck to them.
Though they had that absurd court case years ago when parents of two of their fans who shot themselves tried to prove that subliminal messages in the records drove their kids to do it.
(It emerged that the kids came from homes where alcohol abuse and other disfunctions were rife).

Famous people tend to 'out' themselves about ten minutes before someone does it for them....so it's hardly anything remotely courageous...or interesting.

Basically..who cares. And maybe that's the way it SHOULD be?
