Today’s Black History Month LGBT+ Hero is Lil Nas X nominated by Betsy Furber who says “He’s very new to the music industry but he just seems like the sweetest person on earth. And I love that he embodies Prince/David Bowie’s sense flamboyant/androgynous style. I feel he is someone we need in pop culture right now.”
