Lil Nas X receives support from Miley Cyrus

The Atlanta rapper announced he is gay on the last day of Pride Month

Shortly after announcing that he is gay, Lil Nas X is receiving support from Miley Cyrus.

The Atlanta-based “Old Town Road” rapper, 20, used the last day of Pride Month to post a message confirming his sexuality.

Now Cyrus, who performed with him over the weekend at the Glastonbury Festival in England, tweeted encouraging words to Lil Nas X, calling him her “baby brother.”

Cyrus’ father, Billy Ray, is featured on a remix of “Old Town Road,” which remains in the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Hot 100 for the 13th week.
