“I never would have done that if I wasn’t in a way pushed by the universe,” Lil Nas X shared. “In June, I’m seeing Pride flags everywhere and seeing couples holding hands — little stuff like that.”

Lil Nas X went on to say that he came out to his father and sister in early June before going public with his fans and followers a few weeks later.

“I know the people who listen to [‘Old Town Road’] the most, and they’re not accepting of homosexuality,“ Lil Nas X continued while adding that he had been taught from a young age that homosexuality “is never going to be O.K.”

If you missed it, “Old Town Road” was officially named the longest-running number one single in Billboard history.
