For Gay Pride Month, Billboard asked numerous pop culture luminaries to write “love letters” to the LGBTQ community. Below, singer and actress Katharine McPhee shares hers. Read more Pride Month love letters here.
We live in a time of great change where I’m so proud to support all the progress that the LGBTQ community has made. Of course, as in many new frontiers there is much more work to be done. I’d like to express my unwavering support to the LGBTQ community and appreciation for how much love you’ve shown me throughout the years. From my initial start on Idol, I always noticed the constant love you filled me with. It continued from my debut album to Smash, all the way through to my start on Broadway. I have always felt you right by my side, you’ve kept me going and stood by me every second, and for that I am grateful.
Pride is such an exciting month and a huge reminder of how being your true authentic self is what’s most important in the end. You are a fearless bunch and I am proud to witness just the beginning of your greatness.
Stay true to yourself. Xx
