Radio Show: Jennifer Holliday Cancels, CMT’s Cody Alan Comes Out, Ben Carson Still Confused

This week on my BlogTalkRadio show, I recap these LGBT headlines and more:

• Tony & Grammy Award winner Jennifer Holliday agrees to perform at the Trump inauguration, then reverses in an open letter to her LGBT fans.

• CMT and iHeartRadio host Cody Alan comes out to fans.

• A new Gallup poll shows the LGBT community in the US growing to the tune of over 10 million.

• Dr. Ben Carson still thinks LGBTs want “extra rights,” and he’s wrong.

• Randy Rainbow parodies Into The Woods as he suggests President-elect Trump consider pulling back on the Twitter.

Country Music Personality Cody Alan Comes Out In Instagram Post

Hottie country music personality and host Cody Alan comes out in an Instagram post:

2017. As we start a new year, there is something I want to share with you. You see, I’m gay. This is not a choice I made, but something I’ve known about myself my whole life. Through life’s twists and turns, marriage, divorce, fatherhood, successes, failures – I’ve landed on this day, a day when I’m happier and healthier than I’ve ever been. And I’m finally comfortable enough for everyone to know this truth about me. Thanks for following me and supporting me over the years. As we continue our journey, I hope this news won’t change how you see me. I’m still the same Cody I always was. You just know a little more about me now. My hope for the future is to live the most honest, authentic, loving, and open life possible. Here’s to being happy with yourself, no matter who you are, who you love, where you come from, or what cards life has dealt you. Thanks again. With much heart, Cody
