U.K. Singer Lucy Spraggan Is Out and Paving 'Paths of Visibility' for Others

LUCY Spraggan

Ahead of Pride Month, Lucy Spraggan (who's been an out lesbian since the start of her career) released her fifth studio album, Today Was a Good Day. Spraggan, who is married to a woman with whom she has foster sons, is currently touring the United States and told The Advocate why she’s always been out and open.

“I have always felt like I am just a normal person — another human being that loves and wants to be loved. I was always encouraged by my family to be myself, so I’ve been out since the beginning of my career,” Spraggan said.

“I want other LGBTQ people to feel like I did growing up — comfortable and accepted. By being visible in 2019 we are adding paving stones to the path to equality. We are normal, and we have the right to love who we want to,” she added.

Spraggan was 19 when she performed an original song on The X Factor, which landed her a top 20 single and a top 30 album while appearing on the British singing competition. She recently finished a tour opening for Melissa Etheridge, and her song “Stick the Kettle On” was featured on an episode of Grey’s Anatomy this season.
