At a dinner I finally met @_mykki_ A few years ago when I was still a Christian and in severe denial of my true identity, @felagucci introduced me to Mykki’s music. I was confronted with myself in a way that I couldn’t handle. I remember rejecting not only Mykki, but his music too. It was too much for me. What I was really thinking was that it was ‘too gay’. I was using the language of the people who were oppressing queer people (whether they knew it or not. “It’s alright to be queer, but don’t be too much. Stop being ‘over-the-top’ with it.

Fast-forward to 2018: I came across his ‘High School Never Ends’ song and it’s @dielamb directed music video. It encompasses so much that I love about art: It is beautiful, brutal, romantic, honest and confrontational. I was ready. Looking back now, maybe Mykki’s music and image were part of the things that nudged me to come forward and be honest with myself about myself , “ he continued before crediting Madonna for the image.
