Kehlani Opens Up About Her Sexual Orientation On Twitter: "I'm Queer"

Kehlani tweets about being queer…
 
Kehlani spoke candidly about her sexuality in a series of tweets on Sunday night, specifying her sexual orientation since, as she explained, she keeps getting getting asked.
 
In Kehlani’s eyes, “errybody fine” as she revealed her orientation as a queer woman.
 
“Cuz i keep geddin asked.. i’m queer,” Kehlani said in a tweet that’s since been removed, per Billboard. “Not bi, not straight. i’m attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non binary people, intersex people, trans people. lil poly pansexual papi hello good morning. does that answer your questions?”
 
Kehlani later explained that she deleted the original tweet elaborating on her sexuality due to concerns that her explanation may offend people.
 
In subsequent tweets, some of which have also been deleted, Kehlani said a group of people that rhymes with “braight ben” were the only ones “tweakin’ and offended” by her tweets. Additionally, Kehlani clarified that she’s “LEAST attracted” to these braight ben. “Bisexual men really are little gifts from god tho,” she added.
 
Included below are several of Kehlani’s tweets explaining her sexuality:
 

This is not actually the first time Kehlani’s publicly described herself as queer. In an interview with MTV News in November, she discussed trying to incorporate more of her orientation and identity in her music. “I’m very openly queer. And I thought that my music lacked representation of how my actual life is, and I thought it was important to be myself fluidly, in my music and not just in my life,” she told interviewer Gaby Wilson. “My art mimics my life…It’s only right that that’s what I make music about and that I’m able to put that out confidently.”
