Union J unveils debut single ‘Carry You’

Union J, which includes openly gay member Jaymi Hensley, have unveiled their debut single ‘Carry You’.

The British boyband, who competed on the 2012 season of The X Factor UK, will release the single on 2 June.

Hensley (pictured second from left), who came out while competing on the show last year, said he has been ‘overwhelmed’ by the support he has had, especially from his bandmates George Shelley, Josh Cuthbert and JJ Hamblett.

Back in November, he said: ‘I want to say a massive thank you for people’s support. It has been incredible.

‘I have already had messages from young gay guys saying “Thank you so much, I can look up to you”, and that’s what I did it for.’

Joking at the time ‘Every boyband has got to have a gay one’, Hensley is one of the few mainstream singers to come out before becoming successful.

One of the last stars to do so was Will Young, the first winner of Pop Idol, who came out shortly after winning the show in 2001.

Union J came fourth on The X Factor, finishing behind Christopher Maloney, Jahmene Douglas and winner James Arthur.
