Janelle Monáe Dedicates Grammy Noms to TRANS Community

Janelle Monáe has dedicated her nominations at the Grammy Awards to her “trans brothers and sisters,” reports the Advocate.

“My trans brother and sisters, they do it every day. And they are shunned from these sorts of events. So this one is for them,” Monáe told out Variety reporter Marc Malkin at the Fem The Future Brunch in West Hollywood, which was cohosted by Monáe and Instagram.

Monáe, who came out as pansexual in 2018, received two nominations from the Recording Academy this year.
