切爾滕納姆說唱歌手基南被評為《同性戀時報》的新星

他說。"這是我的身份。我想成為其他人的榜樣。我希望每個人都能感覺到他們可以做自己"。

基南對德雷克和Headie One的Only You Freestyle的自由風格,他說唱他的性行為,在社交媒體上被觀看了120多萬次。

"我討論我的性行為的方式,我是以一種獨特的方式進行的,它更像是一種感覺,這就是我是誰,毫不掩飾。人們尊重它,"他解釋說。

他補充說:"LGBTQI對我來說是一件大事,尤其是作為英國的同性戀說唱歌手,這是一個正在被覆蓋的新領域。

這位說唱歌手說,當他第一次經歷對他的音樂的負面反應時,"這對我來說突出了它是多麼需要,人們多麼需要一個榜樣"。

同志時報》是一本針對LGBTQ+社區的雜誌,聲稱每月有2800萬讀者,在關注了基南的歷程,包括他的EP《Exhibit Green》的發行和在黑人驕傲大會上的表演後,將基南加入了2022年的榮譽名單。

"他們向我描述的方式是我是他們現在需要的一切。

"他說:"那種級別的人願意如此支持我,這感覺真的很好。

但這位藝術家說在切爾滕納姆 "沒有什麼事情發生",他說他所代表的不僅僅是同性戀社區。

"我周圍的人,都是小鎮上的音樂家,覺得自己沒有什麼成就,看着我的旅程,給了他們很大的動力"。

同性戀時代榮譽獎,"表彰對LGBTQ+人群生活有深遠影響的個人和組織 "於11月25日在倫敦舉行。


He said: "It's who I am. I want to be a role model to other people. I want everyone to feel like they can be themselves."

Keanan's freestyle to Only You Freestyle by Drake and Headie One, where he raps about his sexuality, has been viewed more than 1.2m times on social media.

"The way I was discussing my sexuality, I did it in a unique way, it was more a sense of this is who I am, unapologetic. People respected it," he explained.

He added: "LGBTQI is a big thing for me, especially as a gay rapper in the UK, it's new ground that's being covered.

The rapper said when he first experienced negative reactions to his music, "it highlighted for me how much it was needed and how much people needed a role model".

Gay Times, a magazine for the LGBTQ+ community that claims to have a monthly reach of 28 million readers, added Keanan to the 2022 honours list, after following his journey, including the release of his EP Exhibit Green and a performance at Black Pride.

"They way they described it to me was I'm everything they needed right now.

"It feels really nice that someone of that level wants to back me so much," he said.

But the artist, who said "there's not much going on" in Cheltenham, said it was not only the gay community he represented.

"People around me, who are small town musicians and feel like they are not achieving anything, it's given them a lot of motivation watching my journey."

The Gay Times Honours, which "recognise individuals and organisations that have a profound impact on the lives of LGBTQ+ people" take place in London on 25 November.
