Kehlani, who previously identified as queer, has come out as lesbian. According to Gay Timesthe Grammy Award-winning artist took to Instagram Live to confirm her sexuality earlier this week.

During a livestream with friend and photographer Jamie-Lee B, the It Was Good Until It Wasn’t songstress shared with her viewers: “Wanna know what’s new about me? I finally know I’m a lesbian.” Responding to Lee B’s surprise, she added: “Bomb drop.”

In a recent interview with AdvocateKehlani talked about her experience as a queer musician working in a mainstream music industry: “I have a lot of privilege [as a] cisgender-presenting, straight-presenting,” she said. “I think a lot of artists who we talk about and say, ‘Oh, they had to come out or they had to do this,’ a lot of them can’t hide it,” she added and continued: “A lot of it is very [much] in how they present. It’s tougher for them. It’s tougher for trans artists. It’s tougher for Black gay men. It’s tougher for Black masculine gay women.”
