The triple threat inspires people of all backgrounds.

Published June 14, 2018

For our second installment of BET.com's 12 Days of Pride, drag superstar Shangela Laquifa Wadley is honoring triple threat Janelle Monae

The singer, songwriter, actress and six-time Grammy nominee has been slaying the industry since her debut album in 2007. However, just last month she came out as a queer woman in the most glamorous way – in Rolling Stone magazine.

Monae said, "I want young girls, young boys, nonbinary, gay, straight, queer people who are having a hard time dealing with their sexuality, dealing with feeling ostracized or bullied for just being their unique selves, to know that I see you.”

Well, we see you, Miss Janelle. From hit songs like “Yoga” and “Make Me Feel” to starring in movies like Hidden Figures and Moonlight, you deserve to be celebrated this Pride Month. Work, diva!
