15 Best Gay Rappers in the Hip-Hop Industry

There was a time when gay people were seen as aliens. But today, gay people are making their presence known in all industries, just like our gay rappers.

I’m not kidding. In the 1950s, a guy named Frank Robert Wake invented a “fruit machine.” At that time, gays were referred to as the “fruits.”

This machine was created specifically to spot gay men in the Canadian army. That is how much homophobic Canadian people and government were.

Gladly, Canada has recognized same-sex marriage. Accepting the LGBTQ+ community as their equals.
