Gay country star Chely Wright is to wed.
The Single White Female singer, who ‘came out’ as a lesbian last year while promoting her memoirs Like Me: Confessions of a Heartland Country Singer, is engaged to gay rights activist Lauren Blitzer.

A publicist for the country star has confirmed the couple plans to wed in Connecticut in August.

A source tells People magazine, “They met through their youth advocacy work and say that their passion for Scrabble holds them together.”
