Sunmi became a worldwide Twitter trend today after showing support for the LGBT community at one of her shows.
The solo K-pop star was performing in Amsterdam on her Warning world tour, and while on stage, she gave a short speech. In it, she said: "I have so many different sides of me, like dorky... and LGBT queen...", to which fans responded loudly with cheers.
Though the singer's comments were originally misconstrued by fans online who misheard her, she's since clarified what she said with a tweet and confirmed her support for the LGBT community.
Considering the taboo nature of discussing LGBT rights in South Korean society and K-pop, Sunmi has been receiving praise from fans for her open support.
LGBT queen indeed!
