    The increase of out queer rappers is beginning to define the next generation of hip-hop.

    As time goes on, more and more artists are beginning to open up about their diverse sexualities, especially within the hip-hop community. Historically, it has not been easy for many rappers to share their honest preferences. In honor of National Coming Out Day, we are highlighting a few artists within the hip-hop community that are proud members of the LGBTQ+ community.

    Here are 3 hip-hop artists that are proud members of the queer community:

    1. Kevin Abstract

    2. Big Freedia
