Singaporean pop star dropped by his record label for coming out as gay makes triumphant comeback

Willie Tay, a Singaporean pop star whose sexuality cost him his record deal and social media following, has bounced back with a brand new album. Tay was a rising star on the Singaporean music scene when he came out as gay in 2019. Homosexuality is still criminalised in Singapore, and he was promptly dropped by his record label, whose name he can’t reveal due to his contract. “It was terrifying, because before I came out to my label, I was worried about losing my job, whether I could continue singing and all of that,” he previously told Billboard. “So I finally came out to my label and said, ‘I really want to be an openly gay singer, and I think that’s going to help a lot of young lives in Asia.’
