When Union J’s Jaymi Hensley opened up about being gay a few weeks ago, Sugarscape readers responded in droves. The comments all echoed the same thing – everyone was proud, inspired and grateful that Jaymi had the guts to come out and be happy with who he is.
We caught up with the X Factor star earlier this week, who told us one of the reasons behind his decision.
“The main reason I did it was I was at a stage when I was younger that I didn’t have anyone to look up to. I always wished there was someone honest and open about it, and I thought, ‘who am I to sit here and not give that to these kids?’”

Are you a fan of Union J, happy that Jaymi can be so open about who he is?
