Neil Tennant to the D.C. mag Metro Weekly

“I decided to come out publicly (15 years ago) because I was talking to a new (British) gay magazine, Attitude, which had just started publishing.
It seemed a bit ridiculous to talk to them and not say I was gay. It wasn’t a really big deal for me. But I had never discussed it with my parents at that age. I was 40 years old at this point. So it made my parents confront this issue. They were very nice about it all.”

–Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys to the D.C. magazine Metro Weekly, Sept. 3.
