Before going to watch the video of the song, we suggest listening to the lyrics. Lil Nas X isn't singing just about peoples right to choose their own sexuality, he is, in our humble opinion, singing about all those times we choose to hide a part of ourselves from the world. He sings about those aspects of us that actually make us who we are, yet we choose to believe make us somehow not good enough . He poses the question do you really love your neighbor ? are you able to recognize your neighbor as yourself or do you have preconceived ideas about how they should conduct themselves based on those parts of your make-up that you have decided to keep hidden.
