“Thank you to all the men and women I have loved”

Y no se confundan: Spain’s Chanel Terrero gave the opening speech at Madrid Pride and one of her lines made headlines: “Thank you to all the men and women I’ve loved for teaching me to love without prejudice “.

Chanel’s words made the rounds on social media, with some criticizing her for allegedly queerbaiting.

The truth is, the singer has repeatedly stated that she feels attracted to women as well as men, even though she never explicitly said “I’m bisexual.”

Chanel also revealed how she faced bullying and racism as a child.

And quite honestly, in her speech, she seemed to know what she was talking about: “Now that there are voices trying to tear us apart, it is essential that minorities unite like a wall, because we only triumph if we walk hand in hand hand”.

“It’s not just about being respected for loving who you love, it’s also about being respected no matter who you are.”
