"Being open about who I am as a gay man was never something I had to think twice about. It's important to be open and honest about who I am and to show people that there are universal themes of love, like in my music. Yes there are people who will flat-out hate me for being gay, so my music reaching far and wide and my album being successful not only is a victory for me, but it gives hate a big slap in the face, and we can all feel victorious."
