Lil Nas X says the music industry has “sanatized” the music of LGBTQ artists.

The “Old Town Road” hitmaker turned gay in June 2019 and claimed that “anything sexual” about a queer star is often censored.

Speaking on ‘CBS Sunday Morning’, he said: “It’s always been ‘Okay, if you’re gay this needs to be sanitized. Let’s not include anything sexual.’ It’s like, “Be gay without being gay. We don’t want to know what’s going on behind closed doors, or we don’t want you to voice it.

The 22-year-old chart number one – real name Montero Hill – previously admitted he was “scared” to come out.

“Industry Baby” star was terrified of telling the world he’s gay but knew he had to “hang out [his] truth ”for the sake of all other young people like him.

He said, “I was scared because I knew the world was watching, and all I saw for boys like me was judgment and ridicule, but it’s because the world was watching, that I knew I had to stay true to my truth.

And Nas X said he hopes the company will reach a point where it is “no longer revolutionary” for LGBTQ artists to be successful.

Speaking as he was honored at the Native Son Awards last year, he said: “Some people say I push a program forward, and I do. It’s called liberation. no roadmap when you’re the first to break down a barrier, and I hope someday it’s no longer revolutionary for queer artists to find mainstream success …. Until that day comes, there is work to be done and I will continue to do my part.
