Is Iggy Azalea making up for last year?
As you may remember, the Team rapper bailed on her Pittsburgh Pride appearance in June 2015 shortly after being called out for allegedly writing homophobic posts on Twitter. Well, on Tuesday, the Fancy artist confirmed that she’ll be participating in the eighth annual Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade.
LOVES it! The blonde beauty dished:
“I’m honored to join my friend Elvis Duran this year at Miami Beach Gay Pride on April 10! It’s such an important day to celebrate with my LGBTQ fans, and I can’t wait to see my Azaleans there!”
Score! It’s said that the Australian native will be joining the Y100 Morning Show host on his float as a guest of honor. Not to mention, the twosome will be hosting a VIP fundraising event for the LGBT community before the parade.
This moment of generosity may make up for Iggy’s controversy last year. We think it’ll definitely help, especially since Miz Azalea has been such a vocal ally for the community in the past.
We mean, in 2014 Iggy even defended in The Advocate:
“[Homophobia] comes from ignorance and homophobes not being around enough gay people. I don’t get why some straight men are still so scared of gay people. I honestly believe it’s like anything else. People just need to be exposed to it long enough for it to not be scary anymore.”
