Gay rights, too, are something Robyn is passionate about.
She is, she says, aware of her large following in the gay and lesbian community and reckons it is “a sort of fanbase and following that I am very grateful to have and very respectful of.”
“I’ve always been aware of it and very proud of the fact because I think that the gay audience has always been a very critical and a very thinking audience. Sometimes I feel like I get questions about how I feel about my gay audience and I find answering that quite hard because, you know, gay people aren’t all the same,” she laughs.
“I’d never like to assume I can talk to all of you as one mass or as though you’re one person, but I feel very lucky to have that love and that support. It’s a loyal audience that very much understands about change and hardship. Gay rights are a strange thing for me to talk about, but really only because it’s so unnatural to me that everybody shouldn’t have the same rights, you know? It’s sad that it’s something we even have to talk about, really.”
See, this is good. This is how popstar allyship should work.
