From the start of her career, Nicki Minaj has reached out the LGBT community. She once said, "I would encourage my gay fans to be fighters and to be brave. People face difficulties, no matter who you are. I faced difficulties with a lot of things. I face opposition every day, but I didn't kill myself and now, thank God, I'm here. So I want my life to be a testimony to my fans and my gay fans." Nicki isn't a gay icon now but well on her way.
