GAY TIMES OCTOBER 2018 • LADY LESHURR
Lady Leshurr has been making waves in the UK grime scene for years now. Racking up over 152 million views on YouTube and receiving awards and accolades left right and centre, Leshurr is fighting against racism and patriarchal systems with her quick wit and lyrical genius. Coming out as pansexual publicly for the first time in her cover interview with Gay Times, Leshurr speaks with Shakeena Johnson on bigotry in the industry and how she was told to keep her sexuality a secret.
“If you can’t take me for who I am then you can leave. At the end of the day I’m not going to stop being myself.”
