Australian TV presenter comes out and celebrates with rainbow cake

Nick Duffy April 11, 2015

An Australian TV presenter has come out as gay on her 31st birthday – and is celebrating with rainbow cake.

Faustina ‘Fuzzy Agolley, who was previously a co-host of The Voice in the country, made the announcement in a blog post.

She wrote: “As a child I always knew I was gay, but somewhere the feeling got lost. A long and, not always scenic, route ensued to bring me back to who I truly am.

The presenter added: “We’ve created noise, a celebratory noise. We’ve drowned out the negativity that sadly weaves through many homes, communities, governments and countries throughout the world.

“In life, philosophy and literature imparts one of the greatest lessons we continuously come back to, and that is to know thyself.

“For those reading this who are LGBT and haven’t come out – even when society may not deem you equal because of your sexuality – know that you are. And just like in my situation, know that there are people in the world that have your back.

“As black as my skin, as Chinese as my blood, and as Australian and British are my nationalities, I’m also a proud Gay Woman. Most importantly though, I’m a happy human being.”

She added: “Tonight, to coincide with my birthday, I’m celebrating with friends over Rainbow Cake. It’s the Elton John of cakes, complete with rainbow flares.”
