In a recent interview with Attitude magazine, Dua Lipa said that it is her "duty" to fight for her avid LGBTQ fans.

"I have a massive group of friends and [members of] my team who are part of the LGBTQ community, who have inspired me so much and taught me so much," Lipa explained. "They're all my role models in life."

Dua Lipa has already given the gays so much in the shimmying shape of her perfect pop bops – but she is determined to use her platform to fight for the rights of her LGBTQ fans. As Britain's biggest pop star graces the cover of the Attitude December issue, available to download and to order globally now, the 'Hallucinate' singer insists it is her “duty” to speak up and raise awareness as an ally. “I have a massive group of friends and [members of] my team who are part of the LGBTQ community, who have inspired me so much and taught me so much – they’re all my role models in life,” she explains. “It’s entirely a right to be able to love who you want, not just because I have friends in the LGBTQ community, but because we’re all human and we deserve it. It’s something I feel very connected to and will continue to fight for.” Dua, 25, released her chart-topping album Future Nostalgia at the beginning of lockdown; a flickering light during a dark time for many LGBTQ people, unable to seek out their usual safe spaces, trapped, perhaps, in dangerous environments – the numbers seeking suicide-prevention support rose significantly during this period. “It really breaks my heart. It’s hard to put into words how that makes me feel, somebody not being able to continue with their life because of what’s going on around them. That makes it difficult to digest. I can only imagine what that must feel like.” The 'Levitating' singer continues: “To be able to use my platform to spread awareness, show support, talk about it, to make people feel seen, heard and safe, [to] communicate with charities and try to do my part as much as I can… I see that as my duty.” Hit the link in bio to download, order in print, and read the full cover profile.
