Kesha was feeling the spirit of Pride Month when she decided to share a message of support for the LGBTQ+ community and shed a little more light on her own sexuality.

As reported by Page Six, the "Tik Tok" singer revealed in an Instagram post on Thursday that she is indeed "not straight," "not gay," but "open to it all."

"I don't know what I am. I love people," she wrote. Her messaged continued with, "I love people because we are all our own little consciousness journeys, dancing around the sun ?? how weird and interesting and fun this life is, right?"

She added, "I refuse to be anything, really, except for open to it all ????."


Kesha acknowledged that understanding one's sexuality can be "confusing sometimes" and urged to those struggling that they are not alone.

"I know it can be confusing sometimes, but you are so seen and loved. Love u animals, happy pride ????" she wrote.

In 2019 interview with Attitude Magazine, Kesha described herself as being bisexual and never feeling the need to officially come out because she was never "hiding" her true self.

"It was always there," she said. "I think I had a conversation with a gay magazine in the US and they just asked me, 'Oh, are you bisexual?' and I was like, 'Obviously!'"

Before that, the "Pray" singer told Seventeen magazine in 2013 that gender doesn't matter to her when it comes to falling in love.

"I don't love just men. I love people," she told Seventeen at the time. "It's not about a gender. It's just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you're with."

Since 2014, Kesha has been reportedly dating Brad Ashenfelter, but that doesn't mean she feels any less for the struggles facing her LGBTQ+ fans.

Speaking to her LGBTQ+ fans, she wrote: "In case I haven't been straight forward enough (LOL) I just wanted to take a sec to tell everyone that you are not only enough, just as you are, but the world is so f-king lucky to have you."

And us lucky to have her. Happy Pride!
