KATY Perry has always been an LGBTQIA+ supporter, regardless of the slightly problematic context of her breakout hit I Kissed a Girl, and along with other celebs is showing her support for National Coming Out Day.
She cheered on her LGBTQIA+ fans Sunday, as she joined Ellen DeGeneres, Paris Hilton, and a host of other A-listers in celebrating National Coming Out Day on social media.
The 35-year-old donned a Christian Siriano cow-print outfit from this week’s American Idol in a video shoutout on her Instagram Story, telling her 107million followers: ‘Hey. Come out… when you’re ready, of course.’
Katy previously told Glamour in 2018 when discussing I Kissed a Girl, ‘If I had to write that song again, I probably would make an edit on it. Lyrically, it has a couple of stereotypes in it. Your mind changes so much in 10 years, and you grow so much. What’s true for you can evolve.’
Paris Hilton posed in front of a rainbow heart, writing on Instagram, ‘There’s nothing more powerful than coming out and being who you are. #NationalComingOutDay #LoveIsLove’
The blonde heiress said, ‘As anyone close to me knows, I always have been and always will be a huge supporter of the gay community… Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know.’
