The former Canadian Idol finalist expressed his gratitude to his family, friends, and fans for their love and support.

“Life is sweet! Thank you for the outpouring of love, guys. [RJ] and I see all your messages and never in our wildest dreams would have imagined the amount of support coming in from all corners of cyberspace, media, and the world! Figuring out how to navigate life in the most authentic and positive way has been such a long +37-year journey for me, and at this moment, I feel I've reached some kind of karmic jackpot,” he wrote in a new post this Tuesday, adding that he has only come out as a member of the LGBT community to his dad a few weeks ago.

 

On Twitter, Mikey, who is also a recording artist, revealed that he has always hinted about his true identity through his original music.

“For those of you who follow my original music, the songs might have a different context now. To help me cope, I wrote so many songs about being bisexual/gay/closeted in my two albums, e.g. If It Feels Good Then We Should, Secret Affair, Suspended, Every Time My Heart Beats,” he wrote.

“I was so looking forward to the day I could explain what those songs were really about, and hoped it could help someone who was in the same position as myself at the time,” he added.
