Milan Christopher says Lil Nas X coming out has ‘saved lives’.
The Old Town rapper came out on social media on the last day of Pride month after performing at Glastonbury with Billy Ray Cyrus in a series of cryptic tweets, saying he thought it was ‘obvious’.
And although he has faced homophobic hate online, he responded by saying: “next nigga to say something offensive to me getting kissed.”

And now, openly gay rapper Milan Christopher has said Lil Nas X coming out will help LGBTQ teens.
Speaking to TMZ, Christopher said: “I think that it was dope.
“Some people you feel like when their career is falling off, they make this announcement then they get a re-kick to their career.
“He’s at the height of his career and he did it. He’s fearless. He’s dope. I’m here for it.
“LGBT teens across the country have the highest rate of suicide… Lil Nas saved lives.”
