UK pop star Cheryl Cole backs gay marriage and outs her dog
12 June 2012

English RnB pop superstar Cheryl Cole has come out for equal marriage.

Cole, who is currently promoting her single Call My Name, has also urged everyone to take part in the UK government’s consultation on how to introduce equal civil marriage in England and Wales, which ends on Thursday (14 June).

She makes the comments while speaking to Neil Sexton and Debbie Ryan on Gaydar Radio’s N’Debz show, due to air on Saturday.

Cole says: ‘Marriage is far more than a man and a woman, it’s a bond for life. Whether you are gay or straight or whatever it makes no difference to being married.

‘What marriage stands for is that you love that person. You want to commit yourself to that person forever… Why should the fact that you’re attracted to the same-sex make that any different? It makes no sense to me. They’re the same relationship, the same beliefs. It’s crazy. I don’t even understand why it’s even a [big] deal.’

Cole goes on to chat about meeting Queen Elizabeth, the Cheryl Cole foundation, her gay dog Buster and the fact that her lesbian fans are called Chezbians.

She reveals her admiration for Black Eye Peas frontman and coach on UK talent show The Voice, Will-I-Am.

And she also gives a little insight into her new album A Million Lights (released Mon 18th June) as well as her upcoming tour later this yea

You can hear the full interview with Neil and Debbie this Saturday (18 June) from 10am UK time on Gaydar Radio.
