11 Rappers Who Support LGBT Rights

Lil B I'm Gay

Lil B 

Bay Area rapper Lil B has been one of the most outspoken advocates in hip-hop for equality and rights for the LGBT community. Lil B’s brand of music preaches relentless positivism and acceptance of others and in 2011, he decided to make a bold statement in his advocacy of gay rights. Although he is heterosexual, Lil B released a mixtape titled I’m Gay (I’m Happy) ostensibly in support of LGBT rights on June 29, 2011.

Speaking on his reasons for titling the album, I’m Gay, Lil B told CNN at the time, “It was something that was going through my mind for a while. I feel like I’m man of the people: meeting people, respecting people and accepting people. I hope that I can turn some of my fans that might be homophobic or supporters that might be homophobic and say, “You know what, we’re all one people. This is love.”
