Calum Scott performs for an intimate group of fans at the Gay Times Presents: Intimate and Live – An Evening with Calum Scott concert on Wednesday (March 14) at the Hippodrome Casino in London, England.
The 29-year-old British singer celebrated the release of his new album Only Human at the event and chatted with fans during a Q&A session following the performance.
Calum said that he channeled emotions from struggling with his sexuality into the song “If My Love Is Wrong.”
“I really, really suppressed my sexuality all through my teens and most of my 20s, so I was terrified what people would think of me. A lot of people have reached out to me and said they’ve found it really difficult dealing with their sexuality too,” he said. “When I wrote ‘If My Love Is Wrong,’ it was very honest and got that off my chest, but the thought that it might inspire somebody else to come out who’s a lot younger and more vulnerable, then it makes it all worth it.”
“I’m a very, very, very proud gay man,” he told the crowd.
