Lucy Spraggan: "Helping young gay people come out is the biggest compliment"

Lucy Spraggan is a little bit awesome and ever since she came on stage for her X Factor audition and sang about being drunk and embarrassing we’ve wanted to be her mate.

As much as the Spraggster loves having tonnes of fans already, there’s something that beats that by far – inspiring young gay people to come out to her parents.

Lucy who is gay told The Sun: “It’s been amazing. I’ve done gigs and some young girls there said they were watching TV with their parents... they heard my music, their parents loved it, found out I was gay, still loved it and they’ve said, ‘Oh, I’m gay as well,’ and their parents have been fine.

“For me, to have helped someone come out is the biggest compliment ever.”

She also spoke about crappy homophobic and racist people and had a message for them.

“It’s the 21st Century, and if someone doesn’t like the fact that I’m gay then I don’t want them to listen to my music,” she said.

“Anyone who is prejudice or homophobic or racist has got something not right in their brain.

“You can’t just not like someone because of something like that.”
