Kehlani Comes Out As A Lesbian, Discusses Her Sexuality & Privilege

Published: Thursday 8th Apr 2021 by Ryan

Kehlani is speaking out.

For, the singer has just confirmed her sexuality during an Instagram Live video.

Her words below…

“Wanna know what’s new about me? I finally know I’m a lesbian.”

The ‘Distraction’ singer has previously identified as queer over the past several years and has now opened up to The Advocate about working as a queer artist in the music industry while acknowledging her privilege as a “straight-presenting” cisgender woman.

“I have a lot of privilege [as a ] cisgender-presenting, straight-presenting. I think a lot of artists who we talk about and say, ‘Oh, they had to come out or they had to do this,’ a lot of them can’t hide it. A lot of it is very [much] in how they present. It’s tougher for them. It’s tougher for trans artists. It’s tougher for Black gay men. It’s tougher for Black masculine gay women.

… 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.”

She then went on to express her optimism for the future and thanked fans for helping her navigate “teachable moments” when it came to her addressing her sexuality and gender.
