JT and Doechii are celebrating Pride Month by sharing heartfelt messages to the LGBTQIA+ community on social media.

Doechii expressed her deep gratitude, saying, “I owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to the LGBTQ+ community for embracing me so tightly and pushing not only my music, but also championing my personal growth.” She added that her creative work is heavily influenced by her Florida roots and the vibrant LGBTQ+ community, and she dedicates her music to all those who have supported her journey.

JT also shared an encouraging message, urging, “I know it’s not always easy to exist or love yourself when you don’t always have the support or acceptance from family, friends and these lawmakers, but never give up and keep fighting for yourself!” She emphasized the importance of finding safe spaces and supportive people to help create opportunities for self-improvement.

While JT’s support is being celebrated, her fellow City Girl Yung Miami is facing backlash for launching ‘The Gays’ merch. Critics find it insincere due to her past controversial comments. Miami had previously tweeted in 2013 that she would beat her son if she ever saw a hint of gayness in him, a sentiment she reiterated in a 2018 interview on The Breakfast Club, though she apologized for the initial tweet in 2018, expressing her deepest apologies to those offended by her words.

Despite the controversy, the merch line, announced on May 13 and available since May 17, will donate a portion of the proceeds to GLAAD for LGBTQ programming.

JT and Doechii’s messages are a reminder of the importance of support and acceptance during Pride Month, despite the complicated backdrop involving Yung Miami’s past comments.
