Cinco de Gayo

Which Celeb Is Coming Out to People Mag?

Rumors have been circulating for days that a female musician would come out of the closet on the cover of the May 5 People magazine—an occasion the Internet has called “Cinco de Gayo”? There are several signs now that it could be country singer Shelby Lynne. Autostraddle notes that Lynne has cleared her tour schedule during dates that coincide with the celebrity’s expected “coming-out tour,” which begins on The View. Lynne has been dogged by gay rumors throughout her career and has refused in interviews to answer questions about her orientation. Gawker contacted Lynne’s publicist to ask if she was the celebrity who would appeal on People. “I don’t have any information on that,” her publicist said. When asked if Lynne would NOT be on the cover of people, the publicist repeated, “I don’t have any information on that.”
