According to recent reports, AFI lead singer Davey Havok is gay. While this may come as a shock to some fans, Havok has never made a secret of his sexuality. In fact, he has long been an advocate for LGBTQ rights. This announcement is sure to stir up discussion among AFI’s passionate fan base.
During the interviews, Havok was frequently asked about his sexuality. Even though it had been 11 years, it was still a risky time to address inquiries about homosexuality.
But, in an interview with Buzznet, the artist wasted no time in dispelling all the claims and opening up to the public.
When questioned how his fans are unable to comprehend his sexuality, the American musician answered,
“It’s a massive subject. I’ve discovered that that inquiry, along with the skepticism that I seem to emanate, has given folks something….. That kind of reach is pansexual.
It’s a fantastic side effect of what we’re doing to give someone the courage to come out of the closet in front of their family, or simply express themselves artistically in a way that makes them happy, regardless of whether or not their friends would accept them any more. As a result, it’s a very cool side effect of all the speculations.”
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term “pansexual,” it refers to a person who is physically and emotionally attracted to people of all genders. Transgender, a-gender, and gender are all included in ‘All Genders.’
While Havok has yet to address his sexuality, it’s difficult to infer anything from his statement. In the midst of the rumors, his best friend, AFI guitarist Jade, had his say.
Jade wrote on the main discussion board of the AFI, ”
“Davey is not gay, I’m sorry to burst your bubble. Or bisexual. Get it out of your system. It doesn’t mean he’s gay just because your friend said it or because you read it on a message board.
However, because I’ve made similar articles in the past and folks still refuse to believe he isn’t gay, I suppose we’ll have to hear about it indefinitely. I propose that we discuss Fritch. Smith, for example. They are DEFINITELY gay, as I witnessed them holding hands and attending the prom together.”
That’s all there is to it. According to his best friend, the incredible vocalist is not gay.
But, whatever his sexuality, he has never shied away from expressing himself through his distinctive style. And, through his social media, he has become more expressive with time.
Davey Havok has it everything, from excellent looks to wonderful singing, but there’s one thing that always seems to be missing in his life: someone special.
But, before all of this concealment, his dating life was not as mysterious. He had three documented romances, two of which are confirmed and one of which is rumored to be a fling.
Although Havok has recently shied away from dating, this was not always the case.
In 2001, he married Monika Parker, an English actress.
While little is known about their relationship, Parker’s adultery is said to have caused them to break off their engagement.
Although the rumors are unfounded, the two did call off their engagement, and Havok went on to date Brittany Bowen.
Davey, whose full name is David Paden Passaro, is the lead singer of the rock band AFI.
Davey, who is of American and Italian descent, was born in New York but moved to California after his father died when he was only three years old.
Davey established a band with his buddies in high school as a result of his growing enthusiasm for music.
The band disbanded as he finished high school, so he moved to Berkeley and enrolled in UC Berkeley, where he majored in English and Psychology.
He did not complete his study, however, and dropped out to devote his time and energy to music.
Later, the vocalist reconnected with his high school band, AFI, and released many songs together. The band has garnered a large fan base across the country and has increased its reach over the years.
Davey is presently planning for the band’s 2022 tour with their recent release with his band members.
It is unclear what the future holds for AFI, but regardless, they have made an impact on the music industry and will continue to do so. David’s coming out has not only affected his personal life, but it may also affect how the band is perceived in the future.
Only time will tell how this affects their career and whether or not they will be able to maintain their current level of success. Regardless of what the future holds for AFI, we should celebrate David’s bravery in coming out and his contributions to the LGBTQ+ community.
