“THAT is what I’m most proud of this year,” she wrote.
Just days earlier, Kehlani clarified her sexuality on Twitter, telling her followers: “I’m queer”. She subsequently deleted the tweets, writing that she’d been told the wording of the tweet was “singling out of trans & intersex... sounded transphobic, ignorant and to some, sounding like fetishization”.
