Miranda Lambert did a recent interview with PrideSource and talked about supporting her brother Luke at the WorldPride Parade in New York City.
She told the publication, “It was the happiest day. I’ve never seen that many people in that great of a mood in one place in my life. It was so cool, and there was glitter and rainbows everywhere. It was kind of like a little fantasyland, and I got to watch the parade with the NYPD from the best view ever behind a barricade, so I felt really special doin’ that (laughs). It was just lighthearted. Everybody had wings that day and I loved it.”
As Miranda shared it was her first pride parade, “I’d never before. It was my first time. And in New York City! So I did it big. And it was WorldPride too (laughs), and I just went straight for it. It was like, go outside and laugh and look at people and be happy, then go drink and then go back outside and laugh and look at people be happy. Then go drink. One of those days.”
She also discussed her brother, who is gay. “I support him 100 percent in whatever he does. He is a brilliant individual and the most amazing person, and just so genuine. Growing up in the same household, we’re way different. He has no accent, he doesn’t really like country music (laughs).”
She even posted the event and a picture with her brother and his husband on Instagram, writing at the time, “Happy Pride Y’all! #family #ally #worldpridenyc.”
Lambert explained, “I didn’t even realize it was making a statement ’cause I just thought it was normal, and I guess what I mean by that is, I didn’t think it was stepping out of bounds or anything because to me it’s all the same, it doesn’t matter. And I was just there celebrating with my brother and his husband and having a great time. But if it makes somebody happy that I’m a supporter, I’m glad.”
