Madison, WI, Radio DJ Aaron Rogers Comes Out On The Air

It’s been said coming-out is a lifelong process, but A DJ at a radio station in Madison, WI, cut to the chase by sharing he was gay over the airwaves on National Coming Out Day.

Aaron Rogers of Z-104 told listeners Thursday that he would now be living his life as an openly gay man.

“For anyone listening right now, know that you are not alone and that it’s okay to feel the way that you do. Life is very short. Know that you are loved, appreciated, and respected by more people than you realize. It really does get better, and you have my support always.”

On Friday, Rogers thanked well-wishers in a tweet: “Wow, I’m truly blessed… I’m so thankful for wonderful friends, family members and co-workers. So excited for what lies ahead next! 🙂 “
