Rapper Lil Nas X came out to fans through a Twitter post as LGBTQ Pride drew to a close.

The 20-year-old artist, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, asked followers to pay close attention to the lyrics in his song, "c7osure."


The Atlanta rapper tweeted, followed by a rainbow emoji:

"Some of y'all already know, some of y'all don't care, some of y'all not gone fwm [f**k with me] no more."
"But before this month ends I want y'all to listen closely to 'C7osure.'

We were all ears.

Lil Nas X does not announce his sexuality blatantly in the song, but it is implied in the lyrics.

The song "c7osure" touches on themes of coming clean and living authentically without regret.

"Embracing this news I behold unfolding. I know, I know, I know it don't feel like it's time..."
"But I look back at this moment, I'll see that I'm fine."

In the chorus, he tells the listener his intentions of embracing his identity.

"True say, I want and I need/To let go, use my time to be free."

Twitter expressed their support for the young rapper and cheered him on with encouraging comments.





Ain't nobody gonna come for Lil Nas X.

One fan explained multiple reasons for protecting the rapper.

Quite simply haters are threatened by the following:

Others stated that sexual identity or preference doesn't take away from the enjoyment of an artist's music.

One fan had a glimmer of hope restored.

After celebrating a month of pride, the LGBTQ community felt all the love from supporters.

His producer, Boi-1da, was the first to express his support.




Lil Nas X came to prominence with "Old Town Road," a song that was independently released on December 3, 2018 and went viral via the "Yeehaw Challenge" meme through the social media app, TikTok.

After 12 weeks, the smash hit continues to dominate the Top 100 Billboard charts.

If you are struggling with coming out of the closet or are feeling isolated, know there is a community of people who are ready to embrace you for who you are.

One way of finding support is through reaching out to LGBT National Help Center, a non-profit organization who provides a safe space for those dealing with a variety of issues, regardless of age, gender, or background.

Help is out there.

Love is out there.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
