Old Town Road’ rapper, Lil Nas X recently spoke with Time Magazine about coming out, revealing people would stop listening to his music if they found out he was gay.

The 20-year-old rapper said:

“[It] is never going to be O.K. I know the people who listen to this the most, and they’re not accepting of homosexuality.”

He went on to reveal what inspired him to make such a bold step:

“I never would have done that if I wasn’t in a way pushed by the universe. In June, I’m seeing Pride flags everywhere and seeing couples holding hands little stuff like that.”

Respect to Lil Nas X for coming out and, no doubt, inspiring other young people to accept their sexuality – especially within a culture like hip-hop.
