Presumably not because he wants us to remember that, hey, he's a member of an opressed minority himself for any reason, Darren Hayes has been talking about why, after years and years of living in the closet, he finally came out.
You know, after everyone else had done the hard work by coming out when it was difficult, and still a career-threatening move.
Hayes, apparently, was inspired to stand up and be honest about his sexual preferences by... Michael Jackson:
Yes. Jackson. There's someone who's always been proud to be honest and matter-of-fact about what he likes in a sexual partner.
