Pop singer Wilson Knight writes article for Huffington Post about the silent story so many members of the LGBT community are too ashamed to tell.
(New York, NY – August 6, 2013) -?This past weekend, Huffington Post ran upcoming Pop singer Wilson Knight?s groundbreaking article about dating closeted men and proposes gay men are unwilling to separate from unrequited love. Cleverly written, the article titled, “Shadow Roles: When Gay Men Fall Into Detrimental Patterns For Love” parallels the paralyzing dependency with Stockholm syndrome. The article, inspired by his current single, “Stable Ground (feat. ROB.B)” is sure to encourage other gay men to re-evaluate their role in a closeted relationship. While the singer understands that this isn?t everyone?s story, after hearing fans? reactions and their struggles relating to the single, he felt it was necessary to share his personal struggles and how he got out of that revolving cycle in hopes that it would help his younger fan base.
After five years of dating a closeted Catholic marine, the singer finally learned to stand on stable ground and move on. Channeling his heartbreak in music, Wilson began writing and recording songs in the studio. After releasing his debut single, fans identified with the lyrics asking Wilson for a deeper explanation. “It all began as a journal entry. I shared it with my manager and he encouraged me to turn it into an article,” the songwriter explains. “We both knew it was a story of so many, that had to be told.”
With so many new stories being written this year, thanks to the strides towards gay marriage, there is still a silent story so many members of the LGBT community are too ashamed to tell. “I have so many friends who are too scared to talk about the person they?re dating, because that person has a wife.” Wilson confides. “It?s like being in the closet all over again.” The Huffington Post article examines this phenomenon even further. “Too many gay men are willing to take the backseat in a relationship, because society has already conditioned them to consider themselves second class citizens. So with that mentality, sometimes any seat will suffice.”
Finally out of a bad situation, Wilson Knight is focusing his energy and new found freedom on music and writing. The singer is currently in the studio working on an EP slated for release this Fall. Later this month, a remix to his single, “Stable Ground (The Supreme Remix)” featuring openly gay rappers LastO, DDM, Flykingi and Solomon is set to be released. “I?m so excited for this remix! We totally re-vamped the song with a new beat and changed the chorus,? Wilson explains. ?We?re sampling ?Keep Me Hangin? On? by Diana Ross and the Supremes. And with my past situation, I just find the lyrics so appropriate.” Wilson Knight?s current single, ?Stable Ground (feat. ROB.B) is available worldwide on iTunes and can be downloaded here: http://smarturl.it/StableGround.
