Australian Idol winner Kate DeAraugo has confessed her love for gay clubs, admitting she was thrown out of Stonewall on a wild night with the Young Divas!

“I have so many memories of this place,” she told Matty Harrison on OX Live.

“Some were with the Divas. I do remember one night Paulini and I, I think we were actually asked to vacate.”

Kate has opened up about her dark days with drugs following her success on Idol, and is now back in the spotlight with new single ‘Shut Your Mouth’.

Kate is also performing live and free for HIV Testing Week in NSW from 30 May- 7 June 2015.
