Here Are 20+ Times When BLACKPINK Proved Themselves To Be LGBTQIA+ Allies

BLACKPINK continually give love back to the LGBTQIA+ community!🏳️‍🌈

BLACKPINK is one of the biggest K-Pop groups ever, and for a good reason. The girls are not only incredibly talented individuals but kind and caring. Their music continually empowers BLINKs as well, particularly those in the LGBTQIA+ community, which the members themselves have been openly supportive of. Like MONSTA X, they have been approved as allies to the LGBTQIA+ community and, as a result, have had their music played at pride events.

17. When Jennie said, “Love isn’t about the gender.”

In a now-deleted video for MBC Show Champion Pre-Recording, Jennie explained that love could be between people of any gender. She is truly an LGBTQIA+ ally!

I don’t think it (love) necessarily has to be directed with a guy… Love isn’t about the gender; it’s how you feel to that person. Being attractive to different genders is something that we shouldn’t close.
