!! OMG, 'I did it on my own time': Mika offers advice on coming out !!
"It's really important to say and to constantly repeat the fact that it's OK to feel conflicted. It's OK to acknowledge that pressure. And it's OK to have some understanding that your fears are understandable and are actually quite normal. It is so important to figure a way out of that because that's quite a negative state to be in. It's one that I transitioned through, but I did it on my own time. Unfortunately I had to deal with the more public side of it, in which I was grilled about it for so many years. I think it's first and foremost important to say it's OK to be conflicted and it's OK to be afraid but that's not the way it has to be. And also I will say that I truly benefited from a tolerant environment."
