Chance the Rapper’s brother Taylor Bennett comes out as bisexual

Joseph McCormick January 18, 2017

As he turns 21, the brother of Chance the Rapper, Taylor Bennett, has come out as bisexual.

The MC from Chicago came out on Twitter, saying he wanted to openly support the bi community and help others through being out.

Writing on Twitter, he said: “My birthday is tomorrow and moving into next year I’d like to be more open about myself to help others that struggle with the same issues.”

Adding: “Growing up I’ve always felt indifferent about my sexuality and being attracted to one sex and today I would like to openly come out to my fans.”

He continued: “I do recognize myself as a bisexual male and I do and have always openly supported the gay community and will keep doing so in 2017.”

Bennett will be debuting a short film about his debut album, 2015’s Broad Shoulders.

He plans to release an EP next month.

Earlier this month, bisexual recording artist Frank Ocean’s mum came out against Kim Burrell, who went on a homophobic tirade in a sermon.

Burrell, who was later dropped from a performance on the Ellen Show, was featured on tracks with Ocean, as well as Pharrell.
