About Stephen
in successful stage productions and on television programmes as well as contributing further tracks to various projects. In 2008, he rejoined his colleagues as Boyzone reformed for a series of concerts and recordings. Gately wed Andrew Cowles, first in a commitment ceremony in Las Vegas in 2003 and more formally in a civil partnership ceremony in London in 2006. In 1999, he became one of the first pop stars to come out as gay. He was also the first ever boyband member to do so. Upon Boyzone's reformation, Stephen Gately featured as part of the first gay couple in a boyband's music video in what was to be his last music video with the band, for the song "Better". He passed away in his apartment in Majorca, Spain.

About Stephen
Brian Boyd in The Irish Times said "Stephen Gately’s death represents the first time that the boyband genre has had to deal with such a tragic situation". Tim Teeman of The Times (UK) heralded Stephen Gately as a hero of gay rights for his response to being "smoked out of the closet". This memorial is to honour the life of Stephen Gately, his achievements and to extend sympathies to friends, family and fans everywhere in the world over this tragic loss. Rest in peace Stephen your music and your spirit will live on for eternity.

While I was never a big Boyzone fan, 'No Matter What' always hits me hard. I always loved the words, thoughts and sentiment it has. I still love the song and it always makes me cry because it reminds me of being in hospital when my exboyfriend nearly killed me. You touched so many people in many different ways and it is us who now have to shoulder the great loss of your passing. I wish peace and strength to your family and husband and I have the utmost respect

Dearest Angel, I never though for a moment that when you would be gone that I would miss or think of you as much as I do now. I never met you, but to me you where an inspiration and you always made me realised that life is ever so precious. I cant beleive that your gone and hearing it all the time has left me heavy in my heart. I pray that your soul may rest in peace and that you will always remain life a bright star in my heart. Missing you will never be enough

I remember your energy on stage. You really gelled the band together and they all seemed to feed off your enthusiasm. You had the most wonderful smile and I remember when I got your autograph once you had to basically take the pen from me as I was too stunned to pass it to you. You smiled and gave me a wink which was sooo cute. I think that is my favourite memory of you and one which I will treasure now that you are gone. You are in my thoughts.
