Will Young: My Shame

SINGER Will Young has opened up about how living with ’17 years of shame’ over being gay resulted in him turning to X-rated videos online.

The 37-year-old didn’t hold back as he spoke at National Student Pride 2016 at London's University Of Westminster on Saturday.

He said: “I was a love addict, I still am an addict, addicted to porn, certainly addicted to alcohol.

“I’d never been on a date without having at least two drinks before I’d left the house and I didn’t even notice that was a problem.” ...

The Leave Right Now singer explained: “I will keep coming back to shame because it’s such a fundamental thing.

“Until I conquered it I just kept having sex to fill the void, watching porn, shopping, anything, and I think we are told that as soon as we come out everything will be OK, but it’s just not the case.” ...

Think you probably like having a drink and watching porn, dear, not sure shame comes into it.

Maybe the real 'shame' is how gay men are taught to think of themselves as victims.
