Um, can we talk about George Perris, the insanely talented singer who just came out?

Greek-French singer George Perris is speaking his truth — the accomplished performer (those pipes!) has publicly come out as gay.Just ahead of the release of his ninth album, No Amor, which drops on Wednesday, the 38-year-old is opening up about his experience coming to terms with his identity.“I grew up believing that there was something wrong about me because, at the time, when you were a kid in the ’80s or ’90s, you came to believe there was something wrong with you,” he told People. “Back then, people would always use words like ‘tolerant’ or ‘open-minded,’ and I always hated those terms because I think they hide a defiance; there’s contempt to it.
