Talk about an iconic human being that plows through barriers and celebrity and she’s unapologetically herself. It’s so inspiring and it was so much fun”

Kesha shared that she herself was inspired by all LGBTQ+ artists since”being yourself and being proud of who you are is something which may be quite difficult.” She stated that the inspiration behind’We Are Who We Are’ was her commitment to equality and creating a safe space for anyone and everyone to feel comfortable, including,”I remember thinking that I really need to specify that we’re who we are and it was a modest nerve-wracking because I didn’t understand how the world would take it. And I’m so happy that the message that I put behind that tune and also the intention was received as such.”
Speaking about the enduring popularity of her songs, with’Animal’ still being a massive hit among the LGBTQIA+ community, Kesha stated that the community has been where she found”solace,” in addition to helping her feel safe, accepted, and joyful, including playing a Pride series feels”like fking Christmas.”
