MK Nobilette – A New American Idol Is Born

EmKay-Nobilette-5“I’m very obviously gay, and there are always gonna be people in America and everywhere else who will definitely hate me… I think that in the last two years there have been a lot of things that have really changed that, and have made it a positive thing.”

M.K. Nobilette

Here’s hoping that the first openly gay contestant on American Idol puts an end to the trend of never addressing contestants sexuality on popularity TV shows.  Gone are the days when it is acceptable to completely forgo the domestic clips of contenders in same sex relationships for fear of alienating voters who think they may stand a chance at the party. Hopefully this decision {rainbow} flags a greater goal of finally focusing on the talent.  There’s a reason that other contestants burst out of the closet just days after their stints on the show; and while we appreciate their brave decisions, we’re backing MK Nobilette all the way to be the first bona-fide out and proud winner of American Idol.
