Jamai is often asked for his opinion if there is antihomogeweld, but he will never be in the public speak.
“I’m not gay of appeal are eh. I’m just aware of no figurehead for the gay and lesbian movement has become. In every incident around homogeweld hang in there journalists on the line or I there something about ie. That I don’t. I certainly have an opinion about, it’s horrible that it happens, but I don’t want to be on the barricades to climb”, says the singer and presenter in the AD.
Jamai also shows in his music, his orientation in the middle. His songs never go about ’him’ or ’her’. “My songs deal not only about myself, eh. They can be on everyone’s relationship store. I have had about this topic a lot of discussion with my schrijfpartner, Matthijs Rounds. He thought I was ’he’ had to write. That makes it really personal, ” he said. There, he was right, of course. And I thought it for the gay emancipation also really important, but I decided ultimately not to.”
The Idols-winner is afraid that his audience is there to interfere if he is in his songs openly as gay. “Especially the large group of conservative older listeners. They sit there, perhaps not to wait, take offence to it. It remains a dilemma for gay artists.”
