Yesterday we posted about Love & Hip Hop: Miami star Bobby Lytes revealing how Lil Nas X is his new man crush and today another Love & Hip Hop star, Milan Christopher, has come through to express how great Lil Nas X's openness has helped the younger LBGTQ community.
"We really needed that, it's the perfect time to do it. He didn't wait until his career is huge," Milan told TMZ as seen in the video below. "He's young, he's going to inspire a lot of young kids. I've always been advocating that LGBT youth, especially African-American LGBT youth are the number one cause of suicide." He added: "By him [coming out] it sends a strong message to kids to be themselves and they can be successful."
