Country singer-songwriter Maren Morris shared a tender moment with the queens of season 15 of RuPaul’s Drag Race this week.
Morris was this episodes guest judge and offered more than her input on the queens runway looks and acting chops. She also addressed the stigma around homophobia among the country music genre.
“Coming from country music and its relationship with LGBTQ+ members, I just want to say I’m sorry,” Morris said during the episode of RPDR: Untucked. “I love you guys for making me feel like a brave voice in country music. So I just thank you guys so much for inspiring me.”
Morris has shown her ally ship for the LGBTQ+ community since the beginning of her career. Last year, “The Middle” singer engaged in a public feud with fellow country singer Jason Aldean and his influencer wife Brittany Aldean after the latter made comments about the transgender community.
Brittany then made an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show where they called Morris a “lunatic” after “The Middle” singer referred to her as a “scumbag human” and “Insurrection Barbie.”
However, Morris turned the narrative around and started selling a t-shirt that read, “Lunatic country music person,” and ended up raising over $100k for the Trans Lifeline and the GLAAD Transgender Media Program.
In the Untucked episode, Mistress Isabelle Brooks expressed that, “Just you being here shows you’re an ally.”
Spice then said, “I love hearing Maren share her story because a lot of times with country artists, they can’t really express their more progressive ideals. Just her being here shows she’s down to roll with the LGBT.”Hey queen! Don’t miss out on our exclusive curation with the one and only fashion RAJA! Subscribe to Drag Society today.
