Lil Nas X says he feels humbled that his decision to come out has been inspirational to other young gay black men.
The 20-year-old rapper-and-singer announced he is homosexual on his Twitter account in June.
He says he felt a little overwhelmed at “having to be a voice” as a gay African American man. However, he says in an interview with GQ Hyp that he is proud that his actions have inspired so many other people.
He became a sensation after his song Old Town Road became a huge global hit after it was released last December.
