The city of Atlanta is honoring Lil Nas X with his own day for his “artistic influence” and “success” in the music industry, along with his impact in the LGBTQIA community.

Lil Nas X was presented the honor by city councilman and mayoral candidate Antonio Brown at The Gathering Spot in Northwest Atlanta on Wednesday (October 20). Brown stated at the event, “He has made a considerable impact on the LGBTQ community by reshaping how society accepts LGBTQ artists within the music industry, and empowering others to break barriers and be more open, expressive, and personal through music and art.”
