Following Lil Nas X’s public coming out, Billboard Pride reached out to queer rapper Taylor Bennett, who weighed in on the importance of the superstar’s revelation. Below, Bennett describes why the star's coming out will help many of his fans who are struggling with their own insecurities -- as told to Stephen Daw.
I don't know Lil Nas X personally. I met him briefly for three or five minutes after one of these recent festival or concerts...I forget which one it was. But I got a few minutes with him, he's very cool. I am a huge fan of his work though, he is an amazing artist. I really love his new project, 7. I think I play "Panini" every single day, it's very well-made, and he is a very talented artist.
