Greta Van Fleet vocalist Josh Kiszka has spoken about his support of the LGBTQ+ community and revealed his 8-year “loving, same-sex relationship.”
In an Instagram post, Kiszka wrote:
“Where I’ve settled a home in Tennessee, legislators are proposing bills that threaten the freedom of love.
“It’s imperative that I speak my truth for not only myself, but in hopes to change hearts, minds, and laws in Tennessee and beyond.”
“These issues are especially close to my heart as I’ve been in a loving, same-sex relationship with my partner for the past eight years. Those close to me are well aware, but it’s important to me to share publicly.
“Over the years, the outpouring of love for the LGBTQ+ community has been resounding, but there is still work to be done for LGBTQ+ rights in Tennessee, the nation and the world.”
The rocker tagged several human rights organizations, including Human Rights Campaign Nashville, ACLU of Tennessee and the Trevor Project and concluded:
“In response to the exceptional support from my last post, I wanted to share how we can all continue to advocate for this valiant cause.”
Kiszka was talking about the Tennessee legislators who have passed several bills that have discriminated against the LGBTQ+ community in the recent past. This includes SB 1440, which codifies “sex” as “a person’s immutable biological sex as determined by anatomy and genetics existing at the time of birth and evidence of a person’s biological sex.”
There is also other legislation that has pointed to banning drag performances in the presence of children and banning transgender minors in Tennessee from receiving gender-affirming healthcare.
Meanwhile, Greta Van Fleet are set for the release of their third album, Starcatcher, on July 21.
