Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale is speaking out on being “unapologetically bisexual” in an Instagram post celebrating Pride Month.
“I understood there was something different about me from an early age,” Hale writes. “Growing up in a semi Christian household, all of the things I was feeling were inherently wrong. So I hid my bisexuality for a long time.”
She continues, “It was through being in a band, getting out of organized religion, finding my tribe and trudging through the dark murky waters of my life that I was then able to be truly comfortable owning all the things that make me…Me.”
Hale says that she’s now “Navigating within my own spectrum of this tremendous rainbow that we are all a part of.”
“What I hope to pass onto you, whether you are in a state of pride or still riding the high seas…is that by being your true self, embracing what makes you stand out to others, and owning your weird…these things ultimately become your superpowers,” Hale writes. “Your true self is precious, no one can take it from you unless you let them. Wield it like a secret weapon.”
“As far as I know…we only get one time around this ride,” she concludes. “So live and breathe every single part of you. The good, the bad, the colorful and the queer. Rock on motherf***ers! I celebrate you!”
