Editor's Note: Unfortunately, GA Voice learned after our press deadline that Ray Boltz has canceled his concert over Atlanta Pride weekend due to a scheduling conflict. However, this is a great interview with a gay gospel singer and the ramifications he faced coming out. We hope you enjoy it.
Christian musician Ray Boltz brings his “Living True” tour to Atlanta for Pride weekend, with an Oct. 8 performance at First MCC with Azariah Southworth and Lynn Loosier.
Boltz sold 4.5 million recordings and won two Gospel Music Association Dove awards before rocking Christian music fans by coming out as gay. Southworth hosted “The Remix,” a Christian TV show, before acknowledging he is gay, too.
“Since both artists came out within months of one another in 2008 they decided to take their story on the road together,” the pair explains on the website for their tour, www.raylivefromatlanta.com.
