Kehlani joins The L Word: Generation Q and fans can’t handle it: ‘Boss level gay’
Kehlani is adding actor to their resume as they join season three of The L Word: Generation Q.

Kehlani came out as a lesbian in April 2021, having previously described themself as queer.
“I’m just going to f**king say it, because everyone keeps bringing it up today… Well, it’s f**king true. I am gay, g-gay, gay, gay,” they announced in a TikTok video.
The singer describes themself as being “on the non-binary scale”, and uses they/she pronouns.
“I don’t mind when people say ‘she’ at all, but something feels really affirming when people say ‘they.’ It feels like… you really see me,” Kehlani said in December 2021.
