On My Honor Vocalist Comes Out
2013-12-24 by TheGreatQ | 81 Comments

Drew Justice, vocalist of the pop punk band On My Honor, has come out as gay in a recent blogpost. He also talks about his past where, despite believing in gay rights, he felt that as a Christian he himself should not be gay. But since turning 23 he has, through some events that he did not describe, become comfortable with his sexuality and faith coexisting. He began by coming out to his closest friends, and within the last year he told his parents as well. Now, he has shared it with his fans.

You have to be pretty sheltered if you don't think it's really hard for gay people to come out in modern society. Some dude fucking tried to hit my friend with his car over the summer for carrying a purse for fuck sake and I live in "the North."

Yeah people are idiots, everyone should have the right to their own sexual orientation, maybe I have too many gay friends idk
just never has seemed like anything to get worked up about to me

Just doesn't seem like someone announcing their sexual orientation is something that needs to be brought up as news, the
fact that people even acknowledge events like this as even somewhat of a significant occurrence just perpetuates retarded
homosexuality stigmas

So I guess in that light I can definitely see the confusion with this being an andcas article

I think it's completely dependent on region and upbringing though. Like I grew up in a pretty backwards area I guess, but around a lot of people of different ethnicity and a gay uncle, so I never really thought outside my bubble of tolerance that anybody these days could possibly hate people for such silly reasons, and then I had gay friends tell me horror stories about how fucked up people are to them just for being normal ass people and I've grown disenchanted with my home town. Also I got let into a club without even getting carded, and then the bouncer searched the shit out of my friend I was with (he's black). Fuck Allentown.

Never heard of this band. This is not news for a music website. Because of the subject matter I am joyous to know someone can accept what they really are and I support it, but I am never going to listen to this band because some jackass thought they should make it news on the internet and now I am fucking annoyed. Everyone shut the fuck up and accept everyone for who they are even when you don't know a thing about them and keep your bullshit to yourself.

I didn't see that story but i would have reacted the same way. For the record I'm happy that the guy is comfortable and proud to share that but it doesn't need to be a damn news article

I think that at the very least, news like this encourages people of LGBT who are still in the closet to be more comfortable with their sexuality. If you think about it, it's not easy to come out as there is still a social stigma against having a different sexuality (though not as noticeable as before which is a good thing). If more famous people came out and a lot of positive feedback came out of it, then it would help someone from the LGBT community feel at ease with their sexuality and come out of the closet.

The reason this is news is because of past bigotry. Of course it doesn't matter what sexual organs your lover has, but good luck telling conservatards and old people that.

Why is it so hard for you guys to recognize that being out is still a taboo in many places? It actually is helpful for people who front bands that influence young kids to be open about their sexuality because of this.

My poor, weak soul can only hope that Drew Justice does not think of me any less for keeping a shrine dedicated to his being.

Taking influence from Helga Pataki's Arnold-based temple from the hit children's television program, Hey Arnold!, I decided to construct several statues in Justice's likeness.

"while it may not be news to some, the blogpost, for those who read it, is very well written and educational. it speaks upon the hardships he and others may feel in the christian community. and the for today shit isn't that old so him addressing his bullshit is necessary. I think this read isn't a waste of time and whatever gets the word out is fine by me."

andcas for the love of God don't don't type such gay again
