As we dive further into our Celebrations In Pride throughout the month of June, Audacy asked some of our favorite Pop artists why it’s essential to support the LGBTQ+ community during Pride and beyond.
Check out the powerful answers from Lil Nas X, Ava Max, Frankie Grande, and Zara Larsson as we continue to highlight the amazing diversity, creativity, and ingenuity of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Lil Nas X
“It’s important to show support to the LGBTQ+ community because we’re too often forgotten and put aside.”
“It’s 2021 and I think people need to come together once and for all… it is normal. It needs to be said out loud and every day. It just blows my mind when you hear these things, like in some states it’s not legal. Am I living in 1888?!”
“If you were a bigot yesterday and today you were like ‘you know what I am going to help the LGBTQ community’ I will take that help from you, because we need to frankly.”
“We need understanding. And just a little bit more love. So I think it’s really important to just, you know, reach out to your friends and let them know…that you’re always there for them.”
