Wouter Hamel will get less hateful messages after coming out
Since Wouter Hamel his homosexuality was fully accepted, the 40-year-old singer less hateful messages.
On the question of whether he is a role model for the gay community, answers Hamel in The local newspaper, hesitantly.
“What I do notice, is that I have more haatberichten had when I frantically tried not to have. Now, I have been okay with ben, I get understand especially superlieve messages from people. I don’t know whether I consider myself a role model want to call it, but I’m happy that my music is sometimes a little bit can help.”
Hamels new album Amaury appears in the week of the Pride, a week dedicated to the emancipation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, interseksuele people and transgender people. That time of the year is a coincidence, says Hamel, but, according to him, well off.
Hamel has over twenty years ‘out of the closet’, yet it took long before he had his orientation is fully accepted.
“I realized that I myself a very long time in many small ways censored. What you feel, how you look, how you dance on the stage – maybe I was afraid that people me wrong way would see.”
