Jade Thirlwall’s shout out to LGBTQ+ Mixers will make your heart grow three sizes!

She is the light at the end of the tunnel

At times the world can be cruel and confusing for the LGBTQ+ community.

On the one hand, we have come on leaps and bounds in a relatively short amount of time. From being persecuted as little as 50 years ago for our sexuality, to being able to hold hands and kiss on the street today. But then events like today’s #YouTubeIsOverParty where LGBTQ+ creators’ content was revealed to have been restricted on one of the platforms which it is supposed to be championed by serve to remind us that there is still a long way to go.

But it’s stars like Little Mix‘s Jade Thirlwall which are the light at the end of the tunnel. When celebrities use their platforms to spread positive messages it never fails to brighten up our days.

We all know and love Little Mix’s ‘Secret Love Song’. Upon release it was immediately adopted as an LGBTQ+ anthem for its lyrics about a romance which has to be kept behind closed doors:

“Why can’t you hold me in the street?
Why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t we be like that?”

Little Mix, like the queens they are, have embraced their status as LGBTQ+ role models wholly. Jade’s message from the group’s performance on 18th March in Kansas City will bring a tear to your eyes.

jadethirlwallsinging Secret Love Song meant more than usual tonight. To our LGBT fans…please don’t ever be afraid to be who you are ♥️🏳️‍🌈 #DangerousWomanTourKansasCity

Thank you for spreading this positivity, Jade. It’s people like you who help society progress and become more accepting.
