Miranda Lambert Declares Herself LGBTQ Ally, Attends Pride Parade With Hubby
Miranda Lambert, along with her brother Luke and husband Brendan McLoughlin, enjoyed a sunny Sunday (June 30) celebrating the last day of Pride Month at the WorldPride parade in New York City.
Lambert took to Instagram to share snaps of the exciting day, where she and her family joined thousands in the streets of NYC showing their solidarity with the LGBTQ community. Lambert's collection of photos, as well as her Instagram stories, also shows off some fun at famed gay country music bar Flaming Saddles (complete with patrons dancing on top of the bar).
In case it wasn't obvious that she was fully in support of the event, Lambert—who sported a neon green cap with "PRIDE" in rainbow letters—hashtagged her photo #ally, which signifies she identifies cis/straight but is in support of equal rights for the LGBTQ community. Several of Nashville's A-list, including Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild, Maren Morris, and Shane McAnnally, left positive comments on Lambert's post.
WorldPride is the largest LGBTQ celebration in the world, and this year is the very first time it's taken place in the United States. It's additionally being held during the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, which is considered to be the most important activist event in the modern gay rights movement.
Lambert's husband, McLoughlin, looked totally at home on the parade circuit, as he is part of the NYPD himself. The singer shocked fans and her country music colleagues when she announced that she had married McLoughlin in February of 2019. The couple actually got married in January of 2019, but she held off announcing it until February. They made their public debut on the red carpet at the 2019 ACM Awards in April.
