Does Eminem support LGBTQ?

The Mocking Bird rapper’s relationship with the community is complicated. After Eminem’s homophobic lyrics in 2000 caused an uproar, the rapper collaborated with the legendary gay artist Elton John in 2001 to calm down the outrage.

There is no definite answer to Eminem being gay since he is yet to come out fully. It will be an excellent thing for the LGBTQ family if he is indeed one of them because of his influential capacity in the hip-hop community that is often seen as homophobic.
