Swedish popstar Darin comes out in social media post


Popular Swedish pop singer Darin Zanyar is publicly opening up about his sexuality and coming out to the world as a proud gay man.

The pop star is billed as one of Sweden's most popular and best-selling artists and first shot to fame back in 2004 after competing on the Swedish version of the long-running Idol reality singing competition.

Darin shared his story just as the annual pride celebrations drew to a close in the country’s capital, Stockholm. He told his 100k Instagram followers that “Everyone in the world should be able to be proud and accepted for who they are. I know how difficult it can be. Took me a while, but I am proud to be gay. Happy pride!”
