Atlanta City Council has awarded Lil Nas X his own day in Atlanta to celebrate his contributions to music and the LGBTQ+ community.
20 October has been declared as Lil Nas X day in Atlanta by the Atlanta City Council.
Lil Nas X was awarded a plaque commemorating his own day by mayoral candidate Antonio Brown, who said, "He has made a considerable impact on the LGBTQ community by reshaping how society accepts LGBTQ artists within the music industry, and empowering others to break barriers and be more open, expressive, and personal through music and art. And Lil Nas X, I just wanna say you inspire me. I’m running to be the mayor of Atlanta. I would be the first LGBTQ mayor in the history of the city. And you inspire me, allow me to believe I can do it. So thank you."
