Kavana - Pop Star Kavana 'Comes Out' As Gay

British pop star Kavana has 'come out' as gay.

The I Can Make You Feel Good singer reveals he first had a relationship with another man when he was 22 but remained silent about his sexuality at the height of his fame in the 1990s.

He tells Britain's Now magazine, "Part of me is almost embarrassed it's taken me so long to publicly say 'I'm gay. Here I am, aged 36, coming out' - what am I doing? I've never come out publicly because no-one's ever asked. It's become this huge elephant in the room."

The star is making a music comeback as part of new supergroup 5th Story on British reality Tv show The Big Reunion , and the singer admits he initially felt awkward revealing his sexuality to his bandmates and fellow faded pop stars Gareth Gates, Dane Bowers, Adam Rickett and Kenzie.

He adds, "When we met for the first time they asked me: 'Have you got a girlfriend?' I just went, 'No'. It felt weird, so two weeks later I sent them all an email. They said, 'It doesn't matter', so I said, 'Cool, I don't fancy any of you anyway, so don't worry'."

However, the singer revels he is still struggling with confusion over his sexuality, adding, "Part of me wants to say I'm bisexual because I do find women attractive, but I've had more intimate relationships with guys. If I change my mind one day, so be it - but right now I'm gay."
