Kehlani opens up about her sexuality: “I’m queer”

Singer later deleted her tweets

Kehlani recently opened up about her sexuality on Twitter.

The R&B performer wrote in a series of since-deleted tweets: “I’m queer. 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?”

She added: “I’m the LEAST attracted to straight men, y’all really adorable sometimes tho. bisexual men really are little gifts from god tho.”

Explaining why she soon “retracted” her original tweets, Kehlani said it was “because I am being corrected about the way in which i listed the gender spectrum and i’m super super sensitive to being offensive especially when i’m only trying to appreciate.”

“Point is,” she added, “i love love, and that love lies in every gender there is”.

The singer continued: “I always want to be corrected & educated when i am wrong. if i tweet something any form of incorrect, please let me know because i have a massive responsibility by having a platform.”

Kehlani released her debut album ‘SweetSexySavage’ in 2017. Read the NME review here.

Speaking to NME, Kehlani recently spoke about being influenced by Pink.

She said: “There are role models for every type of person. When 
I was little we had all these options. Pink wasn’t perfect; she was kickass and she said what was on her mind. She wasn’t this cutesy pop princess. There was a girl for every little girl to look up to, so I’m just glad that I can provide what I can.”
