Country Star Chely Wright Discusses Film, Coming Out & Equality
In 2010, Chely Wright became the first country music star to come out as gay. Wright’s three-year journey to her coming out day is the subject of a new documentary by filmmakers Bobbie Berleffi and Beverly Kopf.
It deals candidly with Wright’s Christian faith and her concerns about working as an “out” lesbian in the conservative country music industry.
Kentucky Public Radio’s Erin Keane spoke with Wright about the documentary, about coming out in country music and equality issues in the media.
