Gay idols have become a common sight in the K-Pop world and they are helping to bring more acceptance of LGBTQ+ individuals. They are inspiring others by letting them know that it is okay to be different and that they should be proud of themselves. Some of these idols are even able to be role models by encouraging fans to stand up for their rights.
The members of the popular girl group BLACKPINK are a big support to the LGBTQ+ community. They have shown this in various occasions, including when they held a rainbow flag at one of their concerts. They also made sure to show their support when they were asked about the community in interviews.
Aside from the songs they release, these stars are also known for their incredible dance performances. They often do choreographed numbers that are accompanied by a stage show. The best part is that fans can even get close to their favorite stars during these shows. This is because K-Pop has a strong community that feels close to their favorite artists.
There are even times when they are able to share their personal lives with their fans. One such incident was when BTS' RM shared his story of coming out as gay in the United Nations General Assembly. Similarly, Red Velvet's Yeri and solo singer IU have both spoken out about their support for the LGBTQ+ community.
Even though Yeri and IU have spoken out about their sexual orientation, it has not always been easy for them. It is difficult to be open about homosexuality in South Korea, especially when you are a celebrity. But, these idols have done it anyways and are bringing more acceptance to their fans.
