In a recent interview the lead singer and emcee for the famous Chippendales…. Jaymes Vaughan came out as a gay man.
In the interview Vaughan said “I’m really excited about the possibilities of inspiring someone; the possibilities of changing perceptions. I hope to be able to take advantage of a platform so that my fourteen-year-old self that was sitting in Chesterfield County, Virginia, might find some hope. The fourteen year old that had no one to look up to; whose mama told him he better not be gay; whose church told him he was going to hell; whose best friend killed himself because he didn’t “fit in.” Because he didn’t have any hope. I thought for so long you had to cover up who you were to be successful. I’ve realized you can be more successful by being yourself.”
Currently Vaughan is promoting his first single and will soon be releasing his first music video. Check out the behind the scenes below:
