Thanks to Howard for the tip on this story. I have been a fan of Savage Gardenâ€™s music. I have followed Darren as he made his transition into his solo career. Yeah itâ€™s cheesy music, but, like Erasure, their music hit an accord with me. I have wondered about Darren Hayesâ€™ sexuality for years, but there was never any confirmation as he is very private outside of his singing career.
Well, today he has finally come out, and I applaud him. He announced his marriage to his boyfriend of two years in the UK.
From Darren Hayesâ€™ Site:
â€œOn June 19th 2006 I married my boyfriend of two years, Richard, in a Civil Partnership ceremony in London.
I can honestly say it was the happiest day of my life.
I feel lucky to live in an era where my relationship can be considered legally legitimate and I commend the UK Government for embracing this very basic Civil Liberty.â€
Hereâ€™s to a long and happy marriage for you too! And many more years of music to come!
