She then wrote that she’s the least attracted to straight men. “and since we on that… i’m the LEAST attracted to straight men, y’all really adorable sometimes tho. bisexual men really are little gifts from god tho.”
Someone asked why she uses the word “queer,” and she explained:
“if ur attracted to a man and then change your energy up when you find out he’s sexually ambiguous or queer , thass gross. you bout to miss out on some fye shit,” she wrote in another tweet.
Later, she explained why she deleted her original tweet: someone criticized how she described gender.
Earlier this month, Kehlani and Demi Lovato kissed during a performance.
