Kevin Fret Gay
In a 2018 interview with Paper Magazine, Fret opened up about being gay and wanted to be sure that everyone knew that their opinions of his sexuality didn’t matter to him.
Speaking to the publication, he said “I’m a person that doesn’t care what anybody has to say. [Now I see] young gay guys or young lesbians that are looking at me now like a role model, like wow, if he did it, and he doesn’t care what anybody else has to say, I can do it.”
He also talked about releasing his first video and how he wanted people to see him.
“I had everything in my mind, like the day I come out [in Latin trap] as a gay guy. I’m going to make my first video, and I’m going to be showing my stomach, and I’m going to act like I don’t give a damn about what anybody has to say — with my blonde hair, my black nails, showing my stomach, glittery from head to toe,” he explained.
