Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford recently spoke to the East Bay Express about fans’ acceptance of his homosexuality. “It’s a myth that I received any flak from the metal community over my decision to come out,” he insisted. “I have, in fact, received numerous positive responses from fans, as well as e-mails from people who were going through much the same thing. It’s horrible to keep something like that secret, and I felt I had to make it public. I discovered that I was gay when I was about nine or ten. I did go out with girls for a while, but it didn’t last.”
