Sorry, folks who have been speculating about Taylor Swift’s sexuality for a while now. The singer has finally made some comments about the rumors in what seems to be leaked liner notes for the upcoming re-release of her popular album 1989.
Snapshots of the introduction to Taylor Swift’s upcoming re-recorded album, “Taylor’s Version,” were shared on X (previously known as Twitter) last Thursday. Page Six and other sources reported on this news. The prologue text, while not yet confirmed as genuine at the time, mentions the considerable speculation surrounding Swift’s friendships with women like Karlie Kloss during the mid-2010s.
Swift mentioned that she decided to stop dating and concentrate on her personal growth, music, and friendships with females during a certain phase of her career. She believed that by only spending time with her female friends, the media wouldn’t exaggerate or sexualize her relationships. Nevertheless, she later discovered that people could and would still do so.
The mentioned statement seems to be specifically referring to the Gaylor community, an extremely active online group of Taylor Swift fans. This group believes that the singer is secretly homosexual or bisexual and has been dropping hints about it in her music and lifestyle with a level of precision that would make her a genius criminal mastermind. Gaylors have scrutinized Swift’s relationships with Kloss and Agron, the color of her clothes and hair, and primarily the lyrics of her love songs to build their argument that the pop star will eventually come out publicly about her sexual orientation.
Based on what I’ve seen while lurking on Reddit, it seems like fans of Taylor Swift who identify as Gaylors were already feeling a bit shaken up by news of her relationship with NFL player Travis Kelce. There was a lot of speculation that Swift might use this moment to come out as queer, so it’s understandable that some people might be disappointed or hurt. That said, I think it’s important to give the Gaylors some space and time to process this news before diving into discussions about the leaked liner notes. It’s always tough when someone you admire doesn’t seem to share your experiences, but we should be careful not to make assumptions or engage in harmful speculation.
According to the Gaylors, is Taylor Swift a member of the queer community? Despite their belief, Swift has previously denied this theory in more subtle ways. In an interview with Vogue in 2019, she mentioned, “I didn’t realize until recently that I could advocate for a community that I’m not a part of.” While the leaked liner notes from her album 1989 appear to reinforce the idea that Swift considers herself an ally to the LGBTQ+ community rather than a member, as she gives a shout-out to fans who recognized her support for equality and allyship in her song “Welcome to New York.”
Taylor Swift has stirred up controversy with her song “You Need To Calm Down”. This is one of the most straightforward ways that the usually enigmatic singer has addressed the topic of her sexuality. While some fans may be disappointed by this news, it’s certainly helpful to have a prominent supporter on her side.
