Lil Nas X admits that when he was younger he used to pray that being gay was just a “phase,” during an interview with Gayle King for “CBS This Morning.”
Lil Nas X said that he pretty much always knew he was gay even at a young age but the culture around him made me feel like it wasn’t a good thing. A common feeling for a lot of kids and sometimes even adults who haven't been able to come out.
in the interview with Gayle King he says, “Yeah, definitely. I knew..... Especially around my teenage years. You know, I would just pray, pray, and pray…that it was, like, a phase.”
