Belinda Carlisle: Keeping my sonís sexuality a secret was a nightmare
By SP_COP on March 11, 2014 | From metro.co.uk
Belinda Carlisle, 55, has had hits including Heaven Is A Place On Earth. Her son, James Duke Mason, came out seven years ago.

I grew up in southern California. My mom was a housewife, my dad was a carpenter and I was the oldest of seven children. The oldest is the guinea pig and has to be the example to the younger ones Ė I wasnít that good at it. I became a punk in the mid-1970s, dyed my hair green and moved into a commune. My parents didnít like it. Then they came to see me with The Go-Goís and saw how much people loved the band and became very supportive. They were very excited when we got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

My son James came out as gay seven years ago, when he was 14. There were indications along the way but when itís your own child telling you heís gay, no matter how gay-friendly you are, itís still a shock. The first thing that came to my mind was: ĎWhat sort of world is this going to be for him and what am I going to tell my husband?í Heís our only child and I was worried my husband might find the news traumatic. I ended up carrying that secret around with me for three months. I saw my therapist and went though all the things you know arenít true Ė is it something I said or did? I knew that wasnít the case but itís a normal thing to go through.

One day, I said ĎJames is gayí and my husband laughed and said itís a phase. That lasted about a year but they eventually figured it out between themselves. There was a struggle for a while but now we canít imagine our son being any other way....
