Ayu as LGBTQ+ ally?

Hi!
Is there any accounts from Ayu (exept for Lady Dynamite and how beautiful you are pv) with her speaking her mind on LGBT matters and Marriage equality?
I am looking for lyrics, interview, blog posts

Wouldn't it be wild if it turned out Ayu hated gay people.

Maybe she didn't speak out loud about it a lot of times, but some of her actions, like:

- The mere existence of Timmy in her crew
- All of the parts that Lico was a protagonist of something (a PV - XOXO - or live performances - like You & Me at some CDL), specially using her as the regular female dancer she was, not placing as something "unique" or "different".

... are stronger and says a lot to me than a speech.

She did, but I'm not sure if I remember what post it was. I think it was a post that she reposted from Risato who originally reposted it from somewhere else. Based on her actions and representation of them, I've always just assumed ayu had support for trans folks.

She also had words about the wider LGBTQ+ community during her Tokyo Pride performance not too long ago as well. I remember really loving this when someone explained what she was talking about - I think that would be a good find.

She also had a brief post about being at LA Pride some years ago as someone mentioned.

I don't recall her doing explicit interviews about it or anything.

In terms of her work, I think everyone has mentioned the different things here.

Saying that the A BALLADS cover is a LGBT representation is as incoherent as saying that she did the A BEST cover to show support to people with depressive disorder

I think that ayu has made it VERY CLEAR that she supports LGBT rights but another thing is coming up with baseless theories about that half of ayu songs are about LGBT rights

I've heard somewhere that she does hangout at gay bars a lot? so maybe why she is so understanding idk. It's pretty clear that she's a supporter so that's enough.

Also important to mention that Lico was part of the crew even before her transitioning and that she was embraced back to the team as anyone should be. That's a huge statement imo <3 Also when you attend Ayu's concert you can actually see that a huge part of the crowd is LGBTQ+.
