Rap star Young Thug: ‘There is no such thing as gender’
Rapper Young Thug has said “I feel like there is no such thing as gender”, stripping away stereotypes of gender.
The artist features in Calvin Klein’s Autumn Winter 2016 campaign and made the comments about gender in a video interview for the campaign.
He says: “In my world of course, it don’t matter… You could be a gangster with a dress, you could be a gangster with baggy pants. I feel like there’s no such thing as gender.”
The rap star was responding to a question about the fact that he has in the past worn dresses.
