Lil Nas X celebrated the last day of Pride month by coming out as part of the LGBTQ community on Twitter, which was met with an overwhelmingly positive response by fans and celebrities alike. His announcement even caught attention in the political sphere, with Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg showing support on Twitter.
".@LilNasX has gone from viral sensation to groundbreaking musician," Buttigieg, who also identifies as gay, tweeted on Tuesday (July 2). "As a fan, I’m thrilled and inspired to see him standing in his truth as a member of the LGBTQ community. Welcome to the family!"
On Sunday night (June 30), the "Old Town Road" performer posted the video for his song "C7osure" and told fans to listen to the lyrics, which talk about letting go of restraints and being free. He then shared a zoomed-in image of a rainbow on his album artwork, noting, "deadass thought i made it obvious."
