George Michael's family still not convinced he's gay Facebook Thu-20-Mar-14 09:21 Share this By Jay-Jay FeeneyGeorge Michael is gay. Most people knew this even before he came out, but his family are still convinced it’s a faze. He was forced to 'come out' after he was arrested for lewd behaviour in a public toilet in a Beverly Hills park in 1998, and he has lived openly as a gay man ever since – with his boyfriend Kenny Goss! “I think some men were frustrated that their girlfriends wouldn't let go of the idea that George Michael just hadn't found the 'right girl' (yet). Which is still what a lot of my extended family still think!" But George says not everyone wants to believe he’s gay. By the way, George’s new album ‘Symphonica’ is out now.
