Dua Lipa Gloriously Declares ‘Life is Way More Fun With the Gays!’ in Candid Chat With Drag Icon Trixie Mattel

Candid Interview with Drag Icon Trixie Mattel

In a candid interview with the iconic drag queen Trixie Mattel, Grammy-winning pop sensation Dua Lipa opened up about her unwavering support for the LGBTQ+ community and the joy of having queer individuals in her life. The interview, conducted on March 18, 2024, ahead of Lipa’s highly anticipated album “Radical Optimism,” touched upon her long-standing allyship and her stance against homophobia and transphobia.

Embracing the ‘Fun’ of Gay Friends

When asked by Mattel about the point in her life when she realized she had to “accept” the presence of gay men around her, Lipa’s response was both genuine and endearing. “I just love it. There was no ‘accepting’ – I was in it. Life is way more fun with the gays!” she exclaimed, highlighting her natural affinity for the queer community.

Painting Album Art with a Drag Icon

During the interview, Lipa and Mattel engaged in a creative endeavor, attempting to paint the iconic album art for “Radical Optimism,” which depicts the singer facing off against a shark in the water. This collaborative artistic experience further solidified the bond between the pop star and the drag icon, underscoring Lipa’s commitment to celebrating and uplifting the LGBTQ+ community.

Friendship with Troye Sivan and LGBTQ+ Allyship

The conversation also delved into Lipa’s friendship with acclaimed gay artist Troye Sivan, further emphasizing her close connections within the queer community. Mattel took the opportunity to reflect on Lipa’s unwavering support for her queer fans and friends, recognizing her as a true ally.

Powerful Message Against Homophobia and Transphobia

In the previous year, Lipa shared her insightful perspective on LGBTQ+ hate, delivering a powerful message in support of the “free, true, and proud” queer community. During an exclusive interview with Vogue France, the singer reaffirmed her stance, stating, “Homophobia and transphobia are neighbours of misogyny. Many people, deep down, are just scared of themselves. The freedom of others forces them to come to terms with something they are too scared to express. The beauty of a free, true, and proud being paralyses them.”

Fans worldwide have praised Lipa for her powerful words and her steadfast commitment to advocating for LGBTQ+ rights and acceptance.

“She’s 100 percent right,” one fan commented, acknowledging Lipa’s sentiment. “Homophobes [and] transphobes seethe at the fact that queer and trans people are able to do what they will never be able to, which is live life on their own terms and for THEMSELVES.”

Expert Opinion: “Lipa’s Allyship Sets a Powerful Example”

“Dua Lipa’s unwavering support for the LGBTQ+ community is a shining example of allyship,” remarked Dr. Emily Richards, a prominent activist and scholar in gender studies. “Her willingness to use her platform to amplify queer voices and challenge homophobia and transphobia is truly commendable. By embracing her gay friends and celebrating their authenticity, Lipa sends a powerful message of acceptance and inclusivity that resonates worldwide.”
