Since her debut back in 2015, Chicago-based rapper CupcakKe has been an outspoken ally to the LGBTQ community. Her song “LGBT” from her Audacious album served as a rap anthem for queer acceptance.

On Sunday, CupcakKe released a new video for her LGBTQ battle cry “Crayons.” The video shows two men walking down a sidewalk holding hands. When they’re confronted by a bystander about their sexuality, a gaggle of gays rush up to defend them, while the video dives into a dance party led front and center by CupcakKe.

“It’s all about the taste of rainbows and colors/ The gays gonna serve you life like a butler,”  the rapper says.

In a love letter to the LGBTQ community published by Billboard last June, CupcakKe said that being true to yourself was more important than another person’s opinion of you. “Don't hide your truth,” she said. “If coming out to someone makes them love you less, just know that I love you.”
