“Lil Nas X Day” has been established by the Atlanta City Council on October 20, 2021. Officials handed the award at The Gathering Spot on Wednesday night, when fans, friends, and Atlanta locals recognized the Grammy-winning rapper’s contributions to not only music but also the LGBTQ community.
According to TMZ, mayoral candidate Antonio Brown presented Lil Nas with the proclamation plaque and said a few nice things about his influence.
“He has made a considerable impact on the LGBTQ community by reshaping how society accepts LGBTQ artists within the music industry, and empowering others to break barriers and be more open, expressive, and personal through music and art,” Brown said. “And Lil Nas X, I just wanna say you inspire me. I’m running to be the mayor of Atlanta. I would be the first LGBTQ mayor in the history of the city. And you inspire me, allow me to believe I can do it. So thank you.
