You can expect to see a robust discussion and representation of those issues throughout the convention program. Not just from the nominee, but through other vehicles as well. Expect to see the African-American community, the Latino community, the LGBT community, and others represented on stage and in the substance of our policies throughout the week.
We’re fighting for LGBT rights and for women’s rights and for Muslims and for refugees. Well, we shouldn’t be fighting for those groups, we should be fighting for freedom and the liberties that are enshrined in our founding documents and that covers everybody: the woman’s right to choose, the ability to be able to pursue happiness.
I went to my first civil rights rally when I was 17 years old. I was a little skinny blond kid, scared to death, marching against the KKK in South Georgia. And I have never stopped marching in protests since. Not ever. I mean, LGBT rights, women’s rights, the rights of people of color… I’m your guy. I’m going to be out there marching!
Senator Sessions has opposed protections for LGBT individuals. He’s spoken out against Freedom Corps’ marriage equality decision. He opposed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. He opposed the nomination of Loretta Lynch, the nation’s first African-American woman to serve as attorney general. These things worry me.
You can’t expect people who didn’t exist as a community at all until about twenty years ago to have formed a political movement. This attack on the LGBT community was very shocking to the people who consider themselves to be activists. They’re basically playing in the sandbox, and there’s a tank coming!

I’m more interested in helping my fans to love who they are, and helping them to reject prejudice and reject those things that they’re taught from society to not like themselves, to feel like freaks, that they’re not wanted.
Is it different to come out now than it was to come out thirty-five years ago? Sometimes. But if you come out now and you come from poverty and you come from racism, you come from the terror of communities that are immigrant communities or communities where you’re already a moving target because of who you are, this is not a place where it’s any easier to be LGBT even if there’s a community center in every single borough.
I feel that homophobia runs rampant in the music industry, and that artists are allowed to speak openly in a hateful way, in a homophobic way, in a misogynistic way, and the press does not challenge them. And I’m going to be taking a very strong stance against that, and I am an artist who refuses to accept that behavior.
It really did take Billy Lucas’s suicide to wake me up to, kind of, the damage of the success of the LGBT civil-rights movement – higher-profile LGBT people – has done to LGBT youth who are trapped out there in those shitholes. But I don’t think we need Pride. I am still opposed, on philosophical grounds, to the flap of the rainbow windsock and the damage that does to us intellectually.
