COUNTRY music sweetheart Beccy Cole has decided to reveal her sexuality to set an example to her son "that to be yourself is the most important thing in the world".
Cole said she was inspired to use the opportunity to come out as a lesbian on Australian Story tonight by her 13-year-old son Rikki.
"While you can have your privacy and all that, there are certain times and certain issues where I want to set an example to him," she said.
"I have never hidden who I am from him.
"What started me thinking about revealing this more publicly was he was bringing a friend home and said 'Don't worry mum, I haven't said anything'.
"My 13-year-old son was trying to protect me.
"It's such a crucial time for him and he needs to see his mum standing up."
Cole said she came to the realisation she was gay when she split with her musician husband Mike Albeck when Rikki was six-months-old.
The pair remain good friends and he also appears in the Australian Story episode, along with her best friend Kasey Chambers.
As for her fans, Cole said she hoped her revelation did not change their regard for her music.

My view of her hasn't changed. She's a patriot, whatever her sexuality. Personally, I don't believe in gay people being parents, but from what she says - and I won't doubt her - she had her son in wedlock, before she realised her sexuality and both she and her ex-husband are actively involved in being parents to their son.

“Well, Isn’t THAT special!”
I don’t know her & it is her life but right now I am trying to accept news about a cousin who just had a baby boy with her partner....to me it is a form of child abuse when that little boy won’t have a “dad”....how do I congratulate her when I have this opinion?
I guess I may as well “come out” too since everybody else is. I’m a 54 year old white male...and I’m a lesbian. I love women! There I said it.
Never heard of her. Has she been on the Opry?
“Coming out” did wonders for the career of another patriotic, female country singer, Chely Wright. I wonder what she’s been doing these days.
Reading the words of the song, hats off to her. Beautiful girl, beautiful heart.
Maybe she was just cynically trying to exploit a market by doing a song like that.
So proudly proclaiming to the world (and her son) that she is a sexual prevert.
As I said, she was very popular here on FreeRepublic a few years ago. That's how I found out about her actually.
Certainly not. She went overseas on numerous tours for the troops. And her support for them actually cost her quite a lot of her left wing fans.
Don't worry, you'll sober up and you will still love women.
I think that perverts should just keep their perversions in the bedroom, and if really twisted, in the closet, be they celebrity or every day person on the street.
Nobody needs to ‘stand up’ for perversion, there is nothing to ‘stand up’ for, nor to be proud about, and there is no reason to give this carpet muncher a pass because she did some patriotic songs and made some patriotic gestures.
“...to be yourself is the most important things in the world...”
Yup, I’m sure glad Sandusky was himself.
Guess James Holmes was also.
Just what exactly does that meaningless series of words mean?
“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” - Aleister Crowley
Despite what I feel to be the homosexual degradation of our Armed Forces and the ridiculous ways we’ve run our wars since WWII, I’m yet proud too to have such an ally in Australia, and in in the likes of Beccy Cole who at least walks the walk and believes in her country and in something beyond herself.
Just what we need, another Sodomite Lesbian country singer out there recruiting our daughters to the Sodomite Lesbian Lifestyle.
Beccy Cole has decided to reveal her sexuality to set an example to her son “that to be yourself is the most important thing in the world”.
No, Bec, it isn’t. Getting as near to the Example that Jesus set is the most important thing. I guess if you don’t believe in Jesus you’re cool...
Tell them to enjoy their life without you in it. That’s the choice freely taken. People of mental stability must not openly accept and definitely not encourage more of this crap by our silent ‘consent’ “just to get along and have peace in the family”.
The homosexual “left” the normal family and created a fake one of their own.
As for the child, It’s unfortunate but there’s nothing to be done ATM with the politics as it is.
Apparently she is an Australian country singer, as opposed to the Nashville/Opry type.
OMG!!! She can’t really be a true patriot if she is a sinful, demon-spawned homosexual, can she? We should boycott all of her records and start not liking her music immediately.
No, I don't approve of or appreciate homosexuality, but neither do I condemn someone who is not like me but not a threat to me.
Thanks for her service to the troops.
I worry about the impact on her kid but it seems she is working to balance things as best she can.
On the other hand, she named her son Rikki...and nobody noticed?
dont forget Canada’s own KD Lang...
and those maybe gay Dixie Chickens.
where are they now???

He’s either a member of Poison or the subject of a Steely Dan song. “So, mom, I guess you enjoy this Foster’s commercial as much as I do!”
A direct result from eating at the Y.
Haven’t heard of her, but regardless of how good she sings or how “patriotic” she may be, I cannot support her, (by buying any records) any more than I can support anyone running for govt positions or especially judgeships, who is gay, no matter how personable they might be. There is that thing called discernment involved. Everyone has to stand for something, or they fall for anything, that is a firm line where I make a stand.
If we choose to dislike a person because of their private beliefs, then we become as intolerant as those on the left.
I love Chelys Wrights music. She sang a song about some lefty who gave her the finger because she had a USMC sticker on her SUV. She visited the troops overseas. So when she came out did that make everything did before null and void?
Is she the top or the bottom?
I'm sure that some junior high school kids would probably have gotten a giggle from your comment.
I don’t condemn homosexuals anymore than I condemn meth heads. I know patriotic meth heads. But do I trust them or want to be around them? Nope. Same is true here.
She probably is nice to dogs as well. That is fine by itself, but doesn’t make her homosexuality acceptable. Nor does it make me approve of public announcements about sexuality.
I feel sorry for her kid, regardless of her views on entertaining troops. Of course, with the modern US military, she could probably get some of the troops to openly join her in homosexual acts on stage, and Obama would give her a big thumbs up...
YOu has a smell.
...Knocking within. Enter a Porter
Here’s a knocking indeed! If a
man were porter of hell-gate, he should have
old turning the key.
knock, knock! Who’s there, i’ the name of
Beelzebub? Here’s a farmer, that hanged
himself on the expectation of plenty: come in
time; have napkins enow about you; here
you’ll sweat for’t.
knock! Who’s there, in the other devil’s
name? Faith, here’s an equivocator, that could
swear in both the scales against either scale;
who committed treason enough for God’s sake,
yet could not equivocate to heaven: O, come
knock, knock! Who’s there? Faith, here’s an
English tailor come hither, for stealing out of
a French hose: come in, tailor; here you may
roast your goose.
knock; never at quiet! What are you? But
this place is too cold for hell. I’ll devil-porter
it no further: I had thought to have let in
some of all professions that go the primrose
way to the everlasting bonfire.
Anon, anon! I pray you, remember the porter.
Opens the gate....

The last time I saw a mouth like that it was chewing on weeds through a metal grate fence.
Even Elton John admitted that he was sad that his kid would never have a Mom.
“before she realized her sexuality”
Before she realized her sexuality? After she had a son she discovers she is a lezbo?
So, one day she wakes up and said, “Darn, now I remember, I am a lezbo. I knew something was nagging at the back of my mind.”
Look, she sang a wonderfully moving song. I applaud her for it. She is a good singer. Now, as it has been said before, “shut-up and sing.” The rest is irrelevant.
Never heard of her. Too busy clinging to my guns and religion after having not built my business.
It means you are a god unto yourself, therefore if it feels good do it.
Specifically, we must judge:
You can judge matters of taste and preference to some extent --- that's why they have cook-offs, art shows and county fairs.
Things you can't and shouldn't judge, are
This business about "the most important thing is to be true to yourself" is a bit of nonsense, though. Everyone has some sound healthy tendencies, and some pahetically disordered tendencies. To "be true to" your disordered tendencies is a bad idea.
I take it she's pretty young. She's probably no worse --- quite possibly a lot better ---than I was at that age. I wish her the best.
