October 20th is now officially Lil Nas X day in Atlanta, Georgia. He also received an award for his contributions to music and the LGBTQ+ community.
Atlanta’s first openly LGBTQ+ person running for mayor was the one who presented Lil Nas X the award.
“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,” said Antonio Brown to The Atlanta Voice.
“And Lil Nas X, I just wanna say you inspire me.”
He continued: “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.”
Lil Nas X got emotional during his acceptance speech.
“I’m not gonna cry. Shout out to Atlanta. I know a lot of you probably didn’t know I’m from Atlanta. I’m from the A. But seriously, this is amazing. I would not imagine I would be here four years ago, when I was at my sister’s house, sleeping on the floor. This is incredible.”
Lil Nas X has had astronomical success since the release of his first hit Old Town Road.
He currently has 11 songs charting off his debut album Montero, including Industry Baby at number two, Montero (Call Me By Your Name) at nine, and That’s What I Want at 10.
