  • Maren has taken advantage of pride month

In an electrifying revelation, 34-year-old country sensation Maren Morris proudly announces her bisexuality, embracing her truth with open arms during LGBTQ+ Pride Month. Amidst a backdrop of personal and societal challenges, Morris's journey is a beacon of hope and defiance.

Maren is a new person

In this story we look at her courageous declaration, her advocacy for the LGBTQ+ community, and the impact of her words in the conservative sphere of country music.

In the vibrant whirl of LGBTQ+ Pride Month, country music star Maren Morris took a bold step forward, sharing her bisexuality with the world in a heartwarming social media post. "Happy to be the B in LGBTQ+," she exclaimed, alongside dazzling photos with Pride flags, capturing a moment of pure joy and celebration.

Late last year, Morris announced she was leaving country music over concerns surrounding its conservatism, and in 2022 she made headlines for her ongoing feud with Jason Aldean’s wife.

Morris’ 2023 song "The Tree was also seemingly a response to Aldean’s highly controversial music video for “Try That in a Small Town." "I’ve always been an asker of questions and a status-quo challenger just by being a woman. So it wasn’t really even a choice," Morris said to the 'Los Angeles Times' of her country genre exit.

Morris, known for hits like "My Church," hasn't just made waves with her music but has been a vocal supporter of the LGBTQ+ community. Her advocacy took a personal turn with her announcement, intertwining her public persona with her private truth. The revelation comes on the heels of her divorce from Ryan Hurd, marking a new chapter in her life.

Morris's advocacy isn't without its challenges. In a candid interview, she criticized the surge of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, likening the divisive atmosphere to "Nazi Germany." Her bold comparisons and outspoken nature have made her a target for criticism but also a powerful voice for change within the country music scene and beyond.

"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 at the time of politicians pushing anti-drag legislation.

The Grammy winner then spoke about how such bills are affecting the culture in southern states. "I’m from Texas, I live in Tennessee, and I do love the community I have there, but these bills almost incentivize us to turn on one another," she said.

The dark side of truth

"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," said the singer 

"So I would say to my peers who are artists and to record-label heads, publishers, songwriters: 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. You’re going to lose fans along the way — that is just part and parcel of being public-facing."

"But there is a lane that you're widening; I see it year over year at my shows, the crowd feels so diverse and so safe. I know everyone likes money, but is it worth your biography saying that you never picked a side because both sides pay money to buy a T-shirt?"
