On Friday, rapper Mykki Blanco made the decision to share something very personal.
In a Facebook post
Blanco, who is also a poet and performance artist, followed up by commenting on the post, writing, "no more living a lie. HAPPY PRIDE."
Blanco grew up in Harlem and in a 2013 cover story the Village Voice called the performer a "gender ninja."
