CelebNMusic247.com reports that on Sunday, on World Pride day in New York and San Francisco Pride Lil Nas X decided to come out of the closet.
Lil Nas X used Sunday, the last official day of Pride Month to reveal the news to fans
He wrote on Twitter:
Some of y’ all already know, some of y’ all don’t care, some of y’ all not gone fwm no more. but before this month ends i want y’ all to listen closely to c7osure.
He posted this video on Twitter which included the rainbow emoji. It seems like some fans were a bit surprised, so he sent out another tweet showing off some artwork that would have tipped some people off.

Once the news started to go viral Lil Nas X switched gear and suggested that he was just trolling.
Sounds like we have another Young Buck in the rap community. About an hour after his big announcement to the world he was trying to backstep but it was too late.
Lil Nas X stealthily told fans that he was just joking, but no one was buying it.
Take a look:
To be honest that is NOT something you joke about, it can be taken offensively to the LGBTQ community.
The LGBTQ community would embrace Nas X, but to make fun of coming out of the closet, that is something the community frown on. It is a difficult thing to do for a lot of people.
Whatever Lil Nas X wants to identify as is whatever. He already said he is gay, so be it.
What is interesting is that Nas X continues to post photos to hint at his sexuality.
He posted this photo next to the Baron Guillaume Dupuytren statue, which looks very gay and that is the point.
Note: Baron Guillaume Dupuytren was a French anatomist and military surgeon. Although he gained much esteem for treating Napoleon Bonaparte’s hemorrhoids, he is best known today for his description of Dupuytren’s contracture.
