The rapper has a long history of supporting the LGBTQ community, as she also recently officiated a same-sex wedding back in October, she later offered to officiate the wedding of -newly openly gay- Kal Penn and Josh Hall, after the former met Cardi on a flight to Los Angeles.
The mother of one has previously taken to social media to deny that she posted a 'transphobic' meme, "How the f*** am i homophobic or transphobic?have you been to a carribean island where you really see homophobia! Have you dealt with a parent that can’t accept you for your sexuality?i said some ignorant things b4 that apologized for & educated myself on it don’t mean I’m homo (sic)" she wrote.
As a Bisexual woman herself, Cardi subsequently explained that she's had family members who have struggled with their sexuality.
She Tweeted: "I don’t support the LGBT community because I have “gay fans” I support because of the confused feelings I had growing up on is it normal to like girls? I support because I know how hard it was for my gay cousin to come out to his very strict Dominican family
