The “Old Town Road” artist came out on the final day of Pride Month in June.

Lil Nas X opened up about his sexuality on Twitter June 30 — the last day of Pride Month.

“some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more. but before this month ends i want y’all to listen closely to c7osure,” X tweeted with a rainbow emoji.

In his song “C7osure,” from his recently-released EP 7, X has lyrics like “Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow/No more red light for me baby, only green, I gotta go/Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold/This is what I gotta do, can’t be regrettin’ when I’m old,” and “True say, I want and I need to let go, use my time to be free.”

He then followed that up with another tweet highlighting 7‘s artwork, which features a rainbow-colored building in the background among other tall buildings.

“deadass thought i made it obvious,” he wrote in the tweet.

X recently performed “Old Town Road” alongside Billy Ray Cyrus at the BET Awards. The pair arrived at the awards ceremony on horses before taking the stage for their performance.
