Lil Nas X came out as gay on the last day of Pride Month on June 30. He said that he knows many people might not support him anymore but it had to be said. He also posted the video to his song “C7osure” and told fans to listen closely to him discussing his true sexuality. He added that his “7” EP cover gave fans a closer look at him being gay as well.
While the outpour of support for Nas X has been real, there has not surprisingly been some homophobic reactions to him coming out as well. Despite the negativity, celebrities such as Dwyane Wade have offered words of encouragement. DWade told him to focus on all the good in his life and to not allow these fools to get to him.
Popular DJ, Diplo, also said that the people still love Nas X. Nas X’s “Old Town Road” remix with Billy Ray Cyrus is still the top song in the country so the haters can say what they want because in the end, it won’t matter. Seeing someone black, young, and not afraid to come about who they are in regards to their sexual orientation is amazing.
