The artist came out as gay through his track c7osure on the final day of LGBTQ Pride last June.
He tweeted, 'some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more.'
'but before this month ends i want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.'
Lil Nas X later tweeted that he really thought he made it obvious in the album's artwork.
