Each Pride Month, Billboard hosts a group of pop culture icons who write “love letters” expressing their feelings, support and gratitude to the LGBTQ community. The artists who’ve taken part in this year’s series include Courtney Love, Jason Mraz, Maren Morris, Meghan Trainor and more.
The most recent letter-writer is Charli XCX, who revealed how she was introduced to the LGBTQ community and how it affected her life and career.
After releasing her first few songs and getting booked in London, the singer wrote, “As soon as I arrived I was basically in another world. My eyes were opened up to so many new things and experiences and cultures — many of which were linked, influenced or led by the LGBTQ community.”
