The Feelingâ€™s Dan Gillespie has come out if the closet and revealed that he had a very different upbringing.
The singer explained: â€œI was brought up on the gay scene because my mum is gay and so is my uncle.
â€œIâ€™ve been going to Gay Pride marches since I was about four. We were a super right-on family.
â€œNot only did I have two lesbian mothers but my mum was in a wheelchair. We assumed the position of a kind of poster family for civil liberties organisations.
â€œThere is a picture of me when I was six holding up a banner saying â€˜My mumâ€™s a lesbian and I love her.â€™ It was at a Pride event and was used in a lot of newspapers.â€
Referring to his own sexuality, he told The Sun: â€œMost of the kids at school seemed to know I was gay a long time before I knew myself.
â€œI had a slightly effeminate air â€“ and children are very intuitive arenâ€™t they? They spot things. Itâ€™s obvious really.â€
