Sharing an animated visual to go along with his single C7osure (You Like), the 20-year-old captioned the clip with a message to his fans to share his big announcement:

“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. ??✨”

It wasn’t just the rainbow emoji that hinted at the meaning behind his tweet, but if you check out the lyrics to his track (below), you may see what he means:

“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”

Lil Nas continues:

“Brand new places I’ll choose and I’ll go, I know / Embracin’ this news I behold unfolding / I know, I know, I know it don’t feel like it’s time / But I look back at this moment, I’ll see that I’m fine / I know, I know, I know it don’t feel like it’s time / I set boundaries for myself, it’s time to cross the line / True say, I want and I need / To let go, use my time to be free”

While the rapper never explicitly talks about his sexuality or says that he’s coming out, he did end up retweeting a fan’s screenshot of his other visuals which include a rainbow (below):

The Atlanta native also shared the rainbow from his album 7‘s artwork:

On Monday, he was still at it, showing how the horse from his Old Town Road lyrics signifies freedom:

Twitter was quick to congratulate the young star for coming out, with some writing:

“I love that @LilNasX fits literally zero of societies boxes.
Such a window into gen z and I appreciate how free they are.
Keep being you, homie. ?”
“my favourite part of today is that lil nas x has had the homophobes singing ride till I ride no more with such vim”
“F**k! Coming OUT proud when you’re at the Top of the rap Game!!! Do you guys realize how monumental this is?!?! It’s a whole new world now when being gay is an asset! unheard of. So proud of @LilNasX & all #LGBTQA Heroes that changed the world for everyone ❤️?️‍? #pride @glaad”
