On Sunday Katy Perry accepted the National Equality Award at the Human Rights Campaign Gala in Los Angeles, and spoke about her own sexuality during her acceptance speech.
Katy spoke on the reality of her song “I Kissed a Girl” and the world that she was brought up in.
“I’m just a singer-songwriter, honestly. I speak my truths and I paint my fantasies into these little bite-size pop songs. For instance, I kissed a girl and I liked it. Truth be told, I did more than that.
“How was I going to reconcile that with a gospel-singing girl raised in youth groups that were pro-conversion camps? What I did know is that I was curious and even then I knew sexuality wasn’t as black and white as this dress.”
Katy went on to say that she found “people outside my bubble” and she’s been glad to be able to start conversations.
I will never cease to be a champion, an ally, a spotlight and a loving voice for all LGBTQ-identifying people. ❤???(part 1) https://t.co/Swaz38wUwr
