The weekend was World Pride Day, and it was the perfect time for Lil Nas X to come forward with his sexual orientation by posting a video of his song “C7osure” and urging his followers to listen again to its lyrics.

“C7osure” finds Lil Nas X singing about a desire to live a more authentic life. “Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow / No more red light for me baby, only green, I gotta go / Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold / This is what I gotta do, can’t be regrettin’ when I’m old.”
“True say, I want and I need to let go, use my time to be free,” he also sings.
The Atlanta rapper, 20 — who collaborated with Miley’s father Billy Ray Cyrus on his No. 1 smash hit “Old Town Road” — was tweeted a message of support from Miley on Monday.
“SO proud of my baby brother @lilnasx,” she wrote, in a Tweet with heart and rainbow emojis. “In your corner forever my friend!”
