In a recent interview with BBC’s Newsbeat, PVRIS frontwoman Lynn Gunn shared her thoughts on stating publicly that one is gay.

“I used to want to be private about it,” she said. “But I think it’s something that needs to be shared publicly. I think a lot of people are trying to accept themselves and come to terms with it because it’s still a pretty big thing right now. I never had someone to look up to and be like ‘oh that person is OK and they’re gay.’ If I can be that for someone then it’s why I’m open about it… The more it’s talked about, the more accustomed people become to it and it’s not an issue any more.”

PVRIS latest studio album, White Noise, came out in 2014. Catch the band on a US tour this fall with Bring Me The Horizon.
