CYNIC’s Paul Masvidal and Sean Reinert Speak Out on Their Sexuality

cynicTechnical death metal legends Paul Masvidal and Sean Reinert have spoken publicly for the first about their sexuality via interview with the LA Times.  Like JUDAS PRIEST‘s Rob Halford and GODSEED‘s Gaahl, the founding CYNIC members have publicly revealed that they are gay.

Drummer Sean Reinert summed it up best in the interview:

“Gay people are everywhere, doing every job, playing every kind of music and we always have been…It’s taken me years to finally be brave enough to say, ‘If you have a problem with that, then throw out our records. That’s your problem, not mine.'”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.  Cheers to Paul and Sean for having the courage to come out.  And if you have a problem with it, then leave this website. 🙂
