Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale has honored Pride Month by sharing a powerful message about her bisexuality. In a personal Instagram post, the rocker celebrates that she's "unapologetically bisexual" and opens up about her lifelong journey toward fully accepting herself as a queer person.
"I've been approached by many outlets this month talking about pride . . .but I'm deciding to post this . . . straight from this lil bi - horses mouth," Hale wrote in the post.
"I understood there was something different about me from an early age. 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. It was through being in a band getting out of organized religion, finding my tribe and trudging through the dark murky waters of life that I was then able to be truly comfortable owning all the things that make me…Me.
"I'm unapologetically bisexual. 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. 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. So Live and breathe every single part of you. The good the bad, the colorful and the queer. Rock on motherfuckers! I celebrate you!"
Hellyeah, Lzzy. See the full post below.
