Shortly into Kehlani's return to Twitter, she used her platform to explain her sexuality. "cuz i keep geddin asked," she wrote in the beginning of several tweets, "i’m queer. not bi, not straight. i’m attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non binary people, intersex people, trans people. lil poly pansexual papi hello good morning. does that answer your questions?"

Kehlani has been open about her sexuality many times before, recently speaking with MTV in late 2017 about her sexual fluidity. She says she chose to post how she sexually identifies on Twitter because,"1. i love sharing 2. hopefully it aided someone in their own reality." You can read Kehlani's full thread of tweets below.

Kehlani retracted her earlier tweets, posting that she retracted her previous tweets because "because i am being corrected about the way in which i listed the gender spectrum and i’m super super sensitive to being offensive especially when i’m only trying to appreciate. point is, i love love, and that love lies in every gender there is."

She followed up the tweet by adding "i always want to be corrected & educated when i am wrong. if i tweet something any form of incorrect, please let me know because i have a massive responsibility by having a platform."
