VINCINT Talks Attacks on the Queer Community & The Four
I sang “Creep” on that show, because I felt like an outsider. “There wasn’t anyone like me in the contest,” he says. There was no other gay person on TV who had dark skin, loved to sing, or was an artist. “It was for me a time where I got to really shine and show the world who we are and that what we represent is enough.”
The artist has just released “Romance” which is about “finding out that someone you care deeply for is being mistreated and realizing that you could give them better love and a life if you were given the chance.”
VINCINT’s music has always been a way to express his queer Black point of views. The queer community has been vocal in its defense as a wave anti-LGBTQ+ laws has spread across the country.
