!! OMG, quote of the day: Darren Hayes of Savage Garden said coming out ‘saved his life’ !!

“I would say my new album honestly saved my life. I was in a dark place, emotionally, not understanding that just like my sexuality, my creative outlet is a huge part of the person I am, and by denying that, I was denying an essential part of me.”

He told PEOPLE: “I realized that I had never truly been myself at the height of my fame and commercial success. It would have been a huge regret of mine to have retired from the public eye without having come back to the world as my true authentic self. Because I have embraced myself fully in my art, I no longer feel the shame and stigma around my sexuality or my mental health. I openly speak about both because I believe they are connected, and by speaking about what most embarrasses us, it’s my hope that bringing light to sadness drives away the darkness.”

– ‘Truly Madly Deeply’ hitmaker Darren Hayes of Savage Garden, who has been married to Richard Cullen since 2013 and was previously married to Colby Taylor, while explaining that his return to the public eye has been “more authentic” than in his initial heyday of fame.
