Since the whole world celebrated Pride Month 2023, many celebrities and common people came out to reveal their sexual orientation through social media. As Pride Month is about to end various events and celebrations have been happening all around the world.
Kesha, the American singer, and songwriter, has been in the headlines this Pride Month due to a post she has posted on her official Instagram account.
Kesha is remaining positive despite ongoing difficulties in her legal dispute with producer and alleged abuser Dr. Luke. She is also serving as a reminder to everyone that Pride isn’t just about labels.
Kesha Opens Up About Her Sexuality
Kesha shared a message of love and support for LGBTQ+ persons worldwide on Thursday along with a selfie on Instagram.
In the post, the pop star reopened the conversation regarding her sexual orientation by claiming she is neither gay nor heterosexual. The post she shared on June 17 discussed her encounters with gender and identity.
Kesha wrote a note wishing her followers happy Pride and told them that they all are more than enough in the way they are now and reminded them that the world is lucky to have people like them.
The post continued with her revelation that she is neither gay nor straight. She expressed her concern that she actually doesn’t know what she is. According to her, life is very interesting and fun since it’s a little conscious journey and dancing around the sun.
Her Previous References About Sexuality
The pop music artist from Cannibals has previously confirmed her sexuality. She acknowledged being bisexual in an interview with Seventeen magazine in 2013.
She also hinted that she might also be demisexual, which is a term for someone who has sexual attraction to another person when they develop an emotional attachment.
Kesha has claimed that she doesn’t love men instead she loves people. According to her, it’s not the gender thing that makes you fall in love or feel attraction, it is like the energy variation that one feels when being with someone.
She reiterated the same comments in an interview with Attitude magazine in 2019. Kesha reportedly stated that she is bisexual, but as evidenced by her Instagram post, she is just as uninterested in defining her attraction as she was in coming out at all.
Questions and concerns about who belongs at pride have grown more pressing amid the rising hysteria about anti-LGBTQ+ violence and legislation in the US.
But it’s important to keep in mind that anyone can participate in Pride or their LGBTQ+ community without having complete self-assurance or attaching a particular label to their identity.
