Maren Morris is feeling loud and proud. On June 9, the singer posted a celebratory Pride Month message on Instagram, revealing to fans that she’s part of the LGBTQ+ community and identifies as bisexual.

She posted photographs of herself onstage with pride flags, along with the caption “Happy to be the B in LGBTQ+.”

Fans were quick to celebrate the singer’s announcement, with one user writing in the comment section, “Thanks for representing! It can be hard to be the B, and having public representation helps us all.” Another fan added, “Happy Pride! Thanks for being an inspiration and what a special pride this one is.”

Maren’s LGBTQ+ Advocacy

Morris has been a longstanding supporter of LGBTQ+ communities. In 2022, for example, she raised thousands of dollars for the Trans Lifeline and GLAAD’s Transgender Media Program following a public disagreement with a former Fox News host.

More recently, she talked to Billboard about the national spike in anti-LGBTQ+ legislation happening in state governments, including in Tennessee, where she lives. “The fact is, they don’t have solutions for actual problems — this is their niche thing that they get to go off on,” she said of politicians pushing these policies. “These bills almost incentivize us to turn on one another. They’re rewarding us to turn each other in.”

Speaking to the magazine, Morris also discussed being an advocate for queer communities in country music.

“I have heard the term ‘Shut up and sing’ more times than I can count — that’s always the cutesy little threat that they like to make,” she said. “I don’t think any of us got into this art form to be an activist, but that’s ultimately thrust upon you to exist in this space and to feel like you can sleep at night.”
