Janelle Monae Announces She’s ‘Not A Woman’ At Pride Parade
Yesterday she showed her pride while she served as grand marshal of the Pride Parade in West Hollywood, California.
Beautiful singer – who reportedly prefers to date women, wore a risqué black-and-white outfit that included dangling silver covers. Check out the pictures below:
Janelle – who was joined by mother Janet Janet on stage- said: ‘I’m nonbinary, so I just don’t see myself as a woman solely. I feel all of my energy.”
‘I feel like God is so much bigger than the “he” or the “she.” And if I am from God, I am everything. I am everything. But I will always, always stand with women. I will always stand with Black women. But I just see everything that I am. Beyond the binary,’ she added.
Monáe’s musical career began in 2003 upon releasing a demo album titled The Audition. In 2007, Monáe publicly debuted with a conceptual EP titled Metropolis: Suite I (The Chase).
It peaked at number two on the US Top Heatseekers chart, and in 2010, through Bad Boy Records, Monáe released a first full-length studio album, The ArchAndroid, a concept album and sequel to her first EP.
