Out singer-songwriter Boy George told the AP this week that he's always been comfortable with his sexuality.

Boy George is currently touring with Culture Club, the English band he helmed in the late 1970s to the early 1980s.

“Never felt bad about being gay,” Boy George said. “I'm not one of those people that says, 'I wish I'd been born straight.' I don't think being gay makes me better or worse. It's just what happened. It's just the cards I was dealt. And I've always been comfortable with that.”

“And I've joked that I'd probably choose to be gay again, if I had the chance. Cause that part of it has never been a problem for me.”

Boy George remembered “not being popular with everybody” growing up, but added that he was lucky to have the support of his family.

“I came out when I was 15; 1975, maybe 76. And my family adjusted really quickly to my sexuality and I've always had their support,” he said.
