Country Singer Billy Gilman Comes Out As Gay

The floodgates are clearly opening in country music and we wouldn't have it any other way!

On Thursday morning country star Ty Herndon came out as gay, and now singer Billy Gilman is following suit! Gilman became the youngest person to land on the Top 40 country music charts when his 2000 hit "One Voice" charted when he was 12-years-old.

Gilman says in the video that Herndon's decision to come out made his decision easier. (See--coming out can make a difference to more people than you know!)

Watch his coming out video!

Gilman revealed that he's been in a relationship with a man for the last five months. Though Gilman is still concerned for the ramifications coming out may have on his career, he's still made the bold step. He says:

You know, it's difficult for me to make this video not because I'm ashamed of being a gay male artist or a gay artist or a gay person. But it's pretty silly to know that I'm ashamed of doing this knowing that because I'm in an genre and industry that is ashamed of me for being me. That said, I want to say that all of the country artists that literally I grew up with - Keith Urban, Vince, Lee Ann Rhimes and all of these wonderful friends of mine have been nothing but supportive. Not that they knew but they've just been such wonderful people.  

Congratulations, Billy! You're bravery and honesty will only be for the best.

Am glad to see and hear that you are back in music. You were great as a KID singing and now as a adult as well. People who judge you because of what you are should have their brain examined because there are certain things in a person's life that is none of their business, just stating my opinion.. Keep up all of the good work and would definitely like to hear you on the radio again.. Best of luck to you..

Billy,

You are fantastic!  People who have bad things to say are jealous and/or need to get a life!  I love everybody ....it does not matter what color you are or what you do for a living or if you like men or women.

I grew up as a christian and i was never raised with the belief that being gay is wrong. I was taught that everyone is different and sometimes there are unacceptable behaviors and acts although loving the same sex is not one of those unacceptable things. I grew up in a family church and ive been to many others and ive seen n herd hateful things being spouted from christians that is so hypocritical. Now as an adult i do not choose to tell others how to live their life because i dont like it when others tell me how to livr my life. I loved billy when i was little and i still do. Congratulations your my favorite artist! :) people who hate on you need to go find something else to do and worry about their own lives.

Hey Billy, I loved you as a little boy and even moreso as a man. It makes no difference what your relationship preferences are. That isnt what defines you sweetheart. Its your passion and talent and your beautiful soul. And Im well known as Mama T. If those labels wont sign you, I can assure you I can help get you back in the limelight. You could be straight or gay in many of your fans eyes.... while you may have broken many girls heart by this announcement lol, I assure you your fans will still be there to support you. I am here for you and woukd love to work with you.... but if I never meet ya, just know youll always have at least one solid fan in me. Much love sweetie. And im proud of you....

Ha! I love reading these completely irrational and hateful religious banterings by people seemingly uneducated who assume they know gods will. Let God judge his will and shut the fuck up. Your interpreting a book written several thousands of years ago, and boldly forecasting someone's eternal livelihood. I'm going to live satisfied when its you that's judged eventually for being so god damned hateful and not loving your brothers unconditionally. This man is fine. He's not morally corrupt in any way. He loves a man, that's fine.

Congratulations, Billy! I don't know your music but given your courage in coming out and the short clip you shared I look forward to hearing more of you.  I know many gay and supportive country music fans will embrace you!  Keep striving.  In the end that is what sets your music apart, not being gay.

Bravo Billy. Screw all the nay sayers. The so  called "christians" who are so busy judging others. If God has a problem with whomever, he will sort it out. It is not for us here on earth to judge something like this.

Live your life the way you wish and be true to yourself. Good luck to you in all that you do.

sad .....crying face. 1 Corinthians 6:9...It is an abomination to the Lord. It is sinful.

Jesus died a horrible death so we can be forgiven....of our sins. To get this forgiveness we must

repent and ask for it.  Praying for our sad sick world.

So if Jesus died for his sins who gives you the authority to judge? I mean PERSONALLY… I hate it when people try to speak for me so I wonder how your creator must feel. soooooo maybe you should crack open that book you're trying to beat somebody down with and reevaluate that statement. Jesus died because the world was overrun with people who chose to ignore the concept of love and respecting your neighbor.
You can also take a page from MY book and try minding your own damn business. Staying in your own lane is def a stress relief. I mean, at least for me it is.

The world is falling apart because of greed and ignorance. Explain to me why did Jesus died on the cross remember he was betrayed by a man which he knew would betray him out of fear that Jesus could not be molded in the likeness of the times. Read your book closely cause you'll see how wicked man was and how greed they were back in that time and you'll see how nothing has changed the churches are as corrupt as the governments of the world...................may you all find the way back to the real lord that destroys haters and dishonest religions.

Kudos to you for your honesty, integrity, and bravery.  I believe that there are a lot more people than you know that are very supportive of you..not because you are gay, but just because of you, and your talent.  You have so much talent and I can't wait to hear your new music.  Shame on the major labels for not allowing your music to be heard...it's not only their loss but the consumers as well.

The face I make when I click on an Instinct Magazine article in my feed, about Billy Gilman coming out as Gay, and seeing fifteen comments about how he will burn in hell for his faggotry. Are they for real? I mean seriously? How did they even end up on the Instinct Magazine page? Is someone looking at gay porn in secret and getting tracked by google? I mean what the hell. You know some of us like faggotry. Some of us enjoy same sex relations, opposite sex relations, mfm relations, mmf relations, group sex, no sex, color blind sex, sex with toys, sex without toys, sex with foreplay, sex without foreplay, sex with bdsm, sex without bdsm, sex in multiple positions, sex with trans* people, sex without trans* people, and some still like plain old missionary style. If you don't like any of that SO WHAT! Some of us do. No one at Instinct Magazine cares if you think we are doomed for hell. You keep living to die and let the rest of us continue to live our lives without your hate speech.

Nuff Said.. Getting off of the soap box now.

hello. please understand that not all fundamentalist are the same, diocletian. For the most part, those who believe the Bible and are Christians love as God loves. Unconditionally. We dont believe if your gay you will burn in hell. Most Christians I know of believe in salvation as a gift. Just believing. Nothing to do with your "works". SO, im replying to this because it showed up on my facebook and I wanted to see what it was about. Sad that so many are hateful and especially those who profess to be christians. We're not all like that. There are also hatefull people who are not christians or fundamental in their beliefs, so it is not just one side of the fence. God loves all of us. Hates sin, but loves the sinner.  Love the talent of these young artist, hope folks dont look past the gift these young people have. (Your post, btw, is more offensive and hateful than the one you were responding too).

No, it's a spiritual condition.  The bible clearly says that God Himself has given them over to their sinful desires because they have rejected the truth, and calls homosexuality a perversion, and also condemns those who approve of the practice.  Romans 1:25: For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30  slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,

without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

Iv listened to your music since I first new about you when you startes at 12 to 13. live your songs most of all and the personality you bring with your song. I thank you for making the hardest descion of you needing to make public about your story. I don't care what people say about you. To me you are a great artist. I would be disappointed that labels don't want to do anything based of your sexuality. Isn't this supposed to be based on who we love and care for not based on men and female. I'm happily married with my husband and two kids but would still support my kids on the decision if they were to change. Keep up the good work billy.

Oh goodie...one more person standing up and saying, "I'm not like you. I'm different". This country needs to be UNITED, not divided. I don't care if you're black, white, gay, straight, fat, skinny, short, or tall....you're an American with unique gifts and talents that can better this country.

What you do in your bedroom is none of my concern. I'm straight, and I'm married, but you don't see me making YouTube videos telling everyone how proud I am to be straight....because it's nobody's business.

I look forward to the day when we stop labeling each other, and treating each other different because of the color of our skin, or who we choose to love, etc. We're all people. Made in God's image. We're all children of the King, the Almighty. We need to love one another.

Morgan Freeman said it best when asked how he would end racism. His response, "Stop talking about it". The more you shed light on our differences, then more you see them.

If you going to judge someone, do so by the content of their character, not by who they choose to be intimate with or what color their parents were.

Grow up America!

OK, so you have no right to tell the pedophile that he can't love young boys, according to your logic.  You clearly do not know what the bible teaches about homosexuality: Romans 1:25:  For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

      26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

      28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.  So people like you who heartily approve are also condemned unless you repent and actually start following what the bible teaches.  God have mercy.

I agree, how many heterosexuals go around bragging about being that? Oh , wait a minute that is normal as God planned it.

I agree, I don't know why you have to make a big slobbery deal out of it. I'm a country music fan , didn't even know who you were until now. Wait, maybe that has something to do with it.

So please tell me when you made your "SEXUAL preference" in life.  

When did you personally wake up and decide; oh, I think I'm straight.  

Emphasis on "think" in the last statement.  As it is a preference, you would have to make a decision in your life.  And there isn't one among us, that can make any decision with a clear 100% certainty. 

So please tell me of your affirmation of knowing or making your decision?

Great job and enjoy your new found freedom.  I came out in a similar way last year while serving in the United States Army.  It was one of the hardest thing I have ever done, or at least it was at the time.  Now my relationships with my friends and. family are stronger than ever. Everyone acted the exact opposite way that I thought they would, which was a pleasant surprise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ8mHJ_PcRUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ8mHJ_PcRU

Once again, taking that Scripture out of context!!! We are supposed to stand up for the truth, and speak the truth, in love, always!!!  If he wouldn't shout from the mountaintop his sexual preference, he wouldn't open himself up to "judgment"; at least not from this website.  Judgment from God is another matter altogether.   This is what God says about being gay: Romans 1:25:  For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

      26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

      28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.  So it is a sin to a holy God, and not only are those who practice it condemned, but those who approve of those who practice it.  It's sin, pure and simple.  Repent!

Oh look a sky daddy do gooder, brain washed by his book of hate and genocide and a doctrine that mirrors that of middle earth creatures. Amazing that in a world now so technologically advanced, we still have so much of the population believing in an all powerful entity. Truly mind boggling, and this entity these, probably, filth, hypocrite Christians, believe in, caring at all what a music singer does in his bedroom. Religion in of itself is the absolute pinnacle of evil, and so is your wicked, hostile, violent fictional character, charlatan called your Yahweh

Wow! how hateful does that sound, kip!

There is so much evil, hate and terror going on in the world today, and its not because of "christians".  It is sad that you do not know any loving and sincere Christians, and that you group all people who believe the Bible into one ....and saying such horrible things about them. I'm sad that there are "so-called" christians who write anti-biblical things on here, and they give the rest of believers a bad rap. Overall, people who call themselves "Christians", love as Christ loved.  Unconditionally. Many people on here, kip, are on here because it is top news for some reason and ends up on our facebook accounts as news. The Bible is historical. If you were to write about the world today, and in other countries, youd write about genocides and wars, filth and whatever is in the culture of that nation. Its historical....doesnt mean it is right, nor does it mean God approves of it. We live in a fallen world, imperfect.  Jesus is not fictional, btw, even evolutionary scientists know and believe he was a real person who walked this earth. They may not believe he is the Son of God or IS God, but if people study history, they know Jesus lived and that the historic events in the bible are true. Anyway, we love Billy's music and hope this thread will reflect more positive thoughts.

Amen, To this statement! (being ashamed..knows he is doing wrong..) The bible CLEARLY states it is wrong for a man to lay with another man or woman with another woman!...anyone refuting this fact by adding their own rules or defying God's book of life (Bible)....Judgement Day will obviously prove otherwise.

Oh shut up you superstitious dimwit.  Apparently reading and context are not your strengths.  He's ashamed of his industry and the fact that he's experienced such difficulty because of rumors and ignorance and bigotry from the world of country music.  As he stated, clearly, in his video if you don't like the music that's one thing.  But to not even hear it because of how someone loves is downright stupid.

Please keep your imaginary friend to yourself or, at least, don't be so arrogant to presume that you speak for him.

Mad respect from a "breeder", Billy.  Don't sweat the haters.  Use that bullshit for your art.  You don't want some potato of a biggot putting their filthy hands on your work anyway.  It'll infect it with hatred or something.  We all have to be something in this world.  And there's only one thing we can be without destroying ourselves.....and that's ourselves.  You made it buddy.  The difficult part is over.  It gets easier now.  Keep your chin up man.  Rock that shit and send some more of that soul of yours out to us dude!  To the future.  Hooah!
