Christian Music Star Jennifer Knapp comes out as a Lesbian
Jennifer Knapp is a rising Christian music star and is best known for her single “Undo Me” off her debut album “Kansas” in 1998. Since then she has gone on to be a Grammy nominee for her follow up album “Lay It Down” in 2000. She released one more album entitled “The Way I Am,” to go unnoticed and take a hiatus for five years before popping back up into the music scene just last year. On her return to music she now has a new found strength and courage and has “come out” of the closet pronouncing herself a lesbian.
Reuters reports that she is the only Christian genre singer of her caliber who is openly gay, and hopefully this will pave the way for more to feel like it’s okay to be truthful with the world. She is going to try to continue on her path to success with a more mainstream album, preparing herself for the backlash from the Christian community that she may receive. They report that she said, “I just wouldn’t find it respectful at all to say, ‘Hey, this is something that you want in your store next to your Jesus statue.’ It would just be disingenuous to try and convince someone that they needed to do that.”
We wish her all the luck in her career moving forward.
