Listen Back To Born This Way

Born This Way was such an interesting and encouraging piece to listen to on BBC Radio 2 and we are very proud that our one and only Markus Feehily was part of it, sharing his own experience of being in the closet. 🌈 It’s so wonderful to see how happy he has been since he came out despite his worries about how the world would take it in the past. 😃🙌🙌🏳️‍🌈💚

📻You can now listen back to ‘Born This Way’ on BBC Radio 2’s website:

BORN THIS WAY DOCUMENTARY

(50:02 minutes in)

EDIT: We made a transcript of Markus’ words from the documentary. 😃

“It was phenomena! Right to the point if I’m honest where I probably didn’t even appreciate just how many different achievements were going on. It just put more and more more pressure on me because ‘that’s another million people that are gonna be so disappointed when they find out that I’ve been fooling them all along’, you know, this is what was going in my mind. Once again in hindsight it’s crazy but that is how I felt. I was scared of being found out. You know, I was scared of this big dark secret being uncovered and horrifying all of our fans and disappointing, literally, the other lads in the band and the label…”

“So I was ready for it… the backlash. And I swear to God, the next day I woke up, the story was in the paper, it was the biggest anticlimax of all time. The fans… there was not one single negative comment made, you know, not on the internet, nowhere. I felt like maybe the fans had that instinct as well. Maybe they were happy to see somebody finally being true to themselves and coming out of that dark place that I was in and they were so supportive and all of a sudden I was having the best time of my life. Just because I made a decision of coming out.”

RE-EDIT:

Markus wrote on his social networks: Proud to be a part of this BBC Docu about LGBT timeline on @BBCRadio2 you can listen here,I’m on @ about 50.00 min https://t.co/xFObDaqpFk
