Fire Ex main vocalist Sam Yang’s wife, Enno Cheng, came out of the closet on
Sunday, which was a shock to many people. Immediately, Yang posted a status update on Facebook to voice his support, in which he mentioned their wedding vows. Although the update was short, it moved a great many netizens.
Yang said on Facebook that, “One day after we got married, Enno honestly told me about her ‘struggle with self-identification.’ Since then, we have held hands and faced this matter together. After repeated communication and confirmation, we know that our most difficult days have passed. We are doing very well at present.”
Yang also said that, “Over the past nine years, we have been deeply in love with each other. This love is not going to disappear in the future, it will just cease to exist in the name of romantic love. I will never forget my wedding vow to her: ‘I will forever protect Enno’s right to be herself.’ I will continue to be her strongest support in life. I am also very proud of our candor and courage.”
When she came out, Cheng explained, “Since childhood, my sexual orientation has been filled with ambiguity. I was in love with some very marvellous souls, but when it came to persons of the opposite sex, I always failed at the test of physicality; physical contact was stressful to me. After months of repeated communication, we have come to accept the fact that I cannot fall in love with his body, but that he is not to blame. (I feel shy to say this, but he has a great body. No kidding.) The reason is that I like the female body.” [FULL STORY]
