On the heels of a new release, Nick Jonas tells Queerty that he doesn’t consciously “gay-bait” his fans.
“I’ve been pretty clear with my heart and my nature of just wanting to be as supportive of my gay fans as they’ve been of me,’ Jonas says. “So there’s definitely not any cock teasing going on.”
“If anything,” he says, “I hope I can be a real ally for the LGBT community and I’m thrilled to be in a spot where I feel like there’s a lot of mutual love and respect.”
Jonas, who cancelled gigs in North Carolina because of its new anti-trans laws, made similar comments in a February interview with Complex magazine.
“There’s always going to be negativity toward anything that is a positive effort toward change,” he said.
As a heterosexual male, [I am] open and comfortable about loving my fan base, gay or straight, because to me there is no difference, it is my fan base.
“Your sexual preference does not matter to me and it shouldn’t matter to anybody. … The goal is acceptance on all levels — that should be the focus.”
