Lena Dunham, who’s currently in the midst of her first book deal, has posted a series of tweets which she says make her “more comfortable talking about lesbian music and its influence on me”.
The tweets, which have been deleted, were made on Monday (October 11) and are now available for viewing on her Instagram page.
“Lena has always been interested in the intersection of music and politics, and is excited to see how our industry works in the context of a more diverse, inclusive, and inclusive world,” reads the first tweet.
“We’re lucky enough to have a great industry with an incredible audience, but I am so grateful for the voices that are silenced.
I’m a slut, but not a slut.”
The second tweet reads: “I’m not a ‘stereotypical’ lesbian musician, I’m just a normal, average one, but as a lesbian artist I feel like my voice is heard and it’s important that we listen to each other.
That’s why I’m so happy to be the first one to talk about lesbian, lesbian, queer, and trans artists.””
It’s been a year of incredible conversations,” Dunham continued in the third tweet, “about my music and my experiences.
We’ve made it our mission to celebrate our community and the stories behind our music and to create spaces for others to connect, celebrate, and share our art with others.
We love what we do, and I know we’re doing our part.””
The more conversations we can have about the importance of diversity and inclusion, the more we’ll be able to inspire others to take that journey,” she concluded.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do!”
