Chely Wright says she considered suicide

By Greg Hernandez

Chely Wright’s coming out story has touched me so deeply and I think it will tough a lot of other people – gay or straight. For some, you will see a lot of yourself when she talks about the pain of the closet and others – straight people – will hopefully have more understanding and compassion about the coming out process.

The country music star said in an interview on “The Today Show” this morning that she felt there was no way to reconcile being a lesbian with the rest of her life so she considered ending it: “I had a 9 millimeter gun in my mouth. I was taking inventory of my life and I realized I had pieces that I just couldn’t get to intersect. I was living a secret life and I was very much a country music celebrity, and I saw no way to get those to coexist. I gave up hope and I was ready to take my own life.”
