Kehlani has revealed that she's a lesbian to fans in a new Instagram Livehttps://t.co/mpl9NDvEpH— JustJared.com (@JustJared) April 8, 2021
After previously identifying as pansexual, singer Kehlani now says she is a lesbian. The 25-year old (who goes by she/they pronouns) revealed it during an Instagram live stream on April 7, saying “You wanna know what’s new about me? I finally know I’m a lesbian."
She also recently spoke about her privilege as straight passing in an interview with The Advocate:
“I didn’t even really have to come out in my private life. I don’t walk down the street and people look at me and go, ‘Oh, I bet she’s queer’ or ‘I bet that she’s into women’ or anything like that because of the way I present.”
“That’s all privilege and I think that there are quite a few artists who were truly at the forefront but weren’t able to make the strides that I was able to make being 100 percent myself because of the way they present and the biases and the phobias of the American public and the world.”
“I’ve been lucky, super lucky.”
