Azariah Southworth, host of the popular Christian youth show The Remix has done something radical (at least in the Christian world).

The host of over a year and a half has come OUT of the closet! As a homo! A gay!

Congrats on coming out!!!!!

Amen, we say. aMEN.

Southworth says, “This has been a long time coming. I’m in a place where I’m at peace with my faith, friends, family and more importantly myself. I know this will end my career in Christian television, but I must now live my life openly and honestly with everyone. This is my reason for doing this.”

The Remix is seen in more than 128 million homes worldwide. The show is in syndication and averages more than 200,000 viewers weekly.

Southworth has risen to fame in the Christian world and has been featured in different national publications, such as Charisma Magazine and many other religious media outlets.

Southworth adds, ├óΓé¼┼ôI know I will be cut off from many within the Christian community, and if so, then they didn├óΓé¼Γäót get the point of the life of Christ. I believe by me living my life honestly and authentically now, I am able to be a better person and a better Christian. We all know there are so many other gay people in the Christian industry; they├óΓé¼Γäóre just all scared. I was scared, but now I├óΓé¼Γäóm no longer afraid.”

He probably just ruined his career in the Christian biz, but better free and happy than closed and oppressed.
