2018 ‘X Factor’ winner, Dalton Harris who in 2020 declared that he is pansexual, took another step in confirming his sexuality. This time he’s showing off his male partner and their deep love.
As expected, many Jamaicans are not happy with the singer’s move given their homophobic beliefs. However, according to Dalton, he feels like he’s “floating” when he is with his partner. He outlined that, “I hate all men, but when he loves me, I feel like I’m floating/ when he calls me pretty, I feel like somebody/ even when we fade eventually to nothing/ you will always be my favorite form of loving.”
In a video posted on Tiktok, Harris can be seen walking dogs with his partner and even kissed him in one instance. The singer appears to be in love and posted to Instagram that, “I am overwhelmed by the love. It all leads back to LOVE. And it starts with ME”.
The “Cry” singer seems comfortable and ready to face the backlash from many of his fans and much of the wider Jamaican public. He acknowledges and is grateful for the people who are currently in his circle showing their support and most importantly loving him as a human. He earlier stated, “Some things are worth fighting for whilst others aren’t”.
For the past three years, most Jamaicans have not been seeing eye to eye with Dalton. The singer in one instance had even reported that he was scared for his life while living in Jamaica. This was after a picture of him sitting in another male’s lap surfaced online, sparking homosexual rumours.
Donovan Germain, his mentor and former manager is noted to have distanced himself from the singer after his pansexual disclosed. It is also widely known that Harris and his mother have a strained relationship. Harris’ ties to the island seem to be unravelling.
Dalton’s performances during the 2018 season of the ‘X Factor ‘ competition were described by many as very impressive and inspiring. The Jamaican singer made history becoming the first foreign act to win the popular UK talent show.
