Over the past year individuals of the LGBTQ community have been shown a lot of respect from some well known celebrities in support of equal rights. Hip Hop rap veteran Snoop Dogg spoke his honest opinion of the topic with UK's The Guardian on gay marriage & opened up about having gay friends & if homosexuality will ever mix with the hip-hop genre of music.

Check it out below.

Snoop's view on gays:

“I don’t have a problem with gay people. I got some gay homies. Yeah, for real. People who were gay used to get beat up. It was cool to beat up on gay people back then. But in the 90s and 2000s, gay is a way of life. Just regular people with jobs. Now they are accepted, not classified. They just went through the same things we went through as black.”
After giving his answer the interviewer went onto ask Snoop his opinion on Frank Ocean & weather his coming out is helping the hip-hop industry to become more excepting of gays in the genre of music.

On gays in hip-hop:

“Frank Ocean ain’t no rapper. He’s a singer. It’s acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don’t know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine. It’s like a football team. You can’t be in a locker room full of motherfucking tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, ‘Hey, man, I like you.’ You know, that’s going to be tough.”

It is truly a wonderful thing to see so many respectable figures of music & the entertainment industry standing up for the rights of gays & seeing us all as human begins.
