HK singer Anthony Wong comes out
Hong Kong singer Anthony Wong Yiu Ming, one-half of alternative band Tat Ming Pair, ends a 20-year speculation on his sexual orientation at his concert recently.
The Cantopop star, who's long rumoured to be a homosexual, comes out of his closet during his latest concert with Tats Lau Yi Tat (another member of Tat Ming Pair) last night.
"I’m a homosexual. I’m gay," said Wong after performing his hits Mong Gei Ta Si Ta (Forget That He is Her) and Gam Sek (Forbidden Colour).
Though the revelation does not come as surprising - considering the fact that the gay rumour has been going on for so long - the act of making it public is.
Even so, prior to that, there're signs that the musician is ready to come out. At his concert on 20th, audiences were shown a video showing him acting intimately with a male model. In the video, a question is posed: "Is Anthony Wong gay?"
Up until yesterday afternoon, Wong, 49, was still being coy about the question. Via his Weibo, he asked: "Do the media really have to know? The guessing game has gone on for 20 years. If the answer is revealed, where’s the fun?"
