Chely Wright, the Lesbian Whose Straight Fans Have Known All Along

“I wish I’d done it sooner,” Chely Wright says about coming out to OurSceneTV at the GLSEN Respect Awards in New York. “I cannot believe how I’ve been embraced by the gay community. And by the straight community who thought they didn’t know a gay person. That’s what’s been amazing about this journey, is I’m meeting so many of my fans that said, ‘You’re gay? I didn’t know I knew any gays?’ Well yes you do, and you’ve loved her for a long time.”
