The frontwoman of hard rock band Halestorm, Lzzy Hale, has shared some heartwarming advice with an LGBT+ fan, telling him that “living your truth” is “all that matters”.

Hale, who is openly bisexual, occasionally runs question and answer sessions on her Twitter to respond to messages she gets from fans. During a session on Friday (14 May), she responded to a story sent by a gay man.

The fan wrote that he’s a married man living in the Bahamas with his husband, but he said it’s “not easy to be gay here”. He added that he loves her music – even though his husband thinks Hale “screams too much”.

Hale sent back an impassioned response. She wrote: “You are living your truth… and that’s all that matters.

“I’m a bi gal in an 18 year relationship with a man.”

Hale added that “we write our own stories my dear”.

Hale began writing and performing music as part of Halestorm at the age of 13 alongside her brother Arejay Hale, who is the band’s drummer and percussionist. The band won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance in 2013 for its single “Love Bites (So Do I)”. Lzzy Hale was the first female to earn a Grammy in this category.

Hale casually came out as bisexual in a 2014 tweet to a fan. She responded to a fan that she is bi and “secure” in her sexuality as well as her femininity.

In a 2018 interview with Rolling Stone, Lzzy Hale said she didn’t intend for it to be “this big ‘I’m going to announce to everybody’ moment”. Instead, she said she was in the middle of a sincere conversation with fans when she realised: “I don’t think I ever told anybody that before.”

“It’s kind of interesting to have that relationship with fans,” Hale said.

Hale has continuously shared her love and support for the LGBT+ community on her Twitter. In 2020, she posted a gender-bend photo of Halestorm members from an “alternate universe”. One fan responded that the photo was proof why they “love being bisexual”.

To which, Hale said: “It is the best.”
