Legendary singer Diana King is the first reggae/dancehall artist to publicly states that she is gay.

The “Shy Guy” singer made the shocking revelation via her Facebook fan page earlier today.

“YES!!!… I AM A LESBIAN … the answer to my most asked INDIRECT question,” Diana King says.

Her revelation came just over a month after Beenie Man sparked a heated gay rights debate in Jamaica after he released a video on Youtube apologizing to the gay community for his past anti-gay lyrics.

Diana King, who is known for hits such as Shy Guy, LL Lies, and Say A Little Prayer, says she is prepared for the backlash she might received from fans

Read Diana King’s full message to fans below.

My name is DIANA EUGENA KING, known to most as DIANA KING my fans call me KingSinga.
I AM … WOMAN … MOTHER … AUNT … JAMAICAN … AMERICAN … INTERNATIONAL ARTIST … SINGER … SONGWRITER … BAND LEADER … FRIEND … LOVER … ENTREPRENEUR … GODDESS! among other things AND YES!!!…
I AM A LESBIAN … the answer to my most asked INDIRECT question.
I welcome the “WHO CARES” right now LOL.

I answer now, not because it’s anyone’s business BUT because IT FEELS RIGHT WITH my SOUL and I believe by not answering or hiding it all these years somehow makes it appear as if I AM ASHAMED OF IT or THAT I BELIEVE IT IS WRONG. I FEEL NEITHER OF THOSE THINGS … or I would have grown my hair. But all kidding aside, I AM a private person, but sometimes, one has to step outside of their comfort zone to GROW. This here, that I’m doing, is my road. Not everyone will OR is required to travel this way. Some people will carry this fact about themselves to the grave and that’s their prerogative but, a “GOOD” reputation can be a GIGANTIC LOAD in a girls backpack. I KNOW now that it’s time I fully practice the meaning of my face tattoo, which is LOVE YOURSELF LIVE YOURSELF. I JUST WANT TO KEEP IT REAL.
