GAY TIMES DECEMBER 2018 • CUPCAKKE
CupcakKe is not only one of hip-hop’s most prolific up-and-comers, but a staunch ally and advocate for the LGBTQ community. With two songs dedicated to her queer fans, and an ongoing attitude of IDGAF, she’s a modern queer icon for a new generation: sticking to her guns on inclusivity in a genre not always known for accepting LGBTQ people.
“Before I even had a career I had LGBTQ friends who I’d hang out with. They’re human. I look at them like a regular person, not, ‘Oh that’s somebody that’s part of the LGBTQ community’, it’s like, ‘Oh that’s another human being’. That’s just how I see it. Everyone likes who they like.”
Elsewhere in the issue: Paris Hilton; Hayley Kiyoko; Jake Borelli; Wanda Sykes; Jamie Windust; Swati Mandela; Food 4 Thot; Sara Bareilles; Maxwell Poth plus travel, style, products, fashion and much more!
