Mark Feehily’s CD:UK Interview [August 2002]

The title is a bit odd in retrospect, but there’s obviously a lot of pressure put on stars not to be ‘out’ if they’re gay in case it affects their popularity; therefore, I can imagine how difficult it must have been for Mark keeping his sexuality a secret. Of course, it seems easier these days (congrats to Union J’s Jaymi for coming out) but it was still taboo a decade ago. Congrats to Mark when he did publicly come-out, which I’m sure made it easier for people like Jaymi!

About Brian

Hi, I’m Brian! Welcome to the Mark Feehily FanListing! I have been a Westlife Fan from the beginning, and Mark is—of course—my favorite member of Westlife. I live in Ireland and work in I.T.. Apart from Westlife, my other favorite music includes Within Temptation, Good Charlotte, Madonna, Kylie, ABBA, Duran Duran, Def Leppard, and KISS. As someone who’s loved Westlife from the beginning, I run the Mark Feehily FanListing. Unfortunately, I don’t know Mark—I’m only a fan, like you. However, if you do find problems with the site (eg, a broken link), you can send an Email to Just add Brian before the @ sign. Thank you for your help and cooperation. Brian.
