Pop singer Chappell Roan, a member of the LGBTQ+ community, revealed on Sunday that she declined an invitation to perform at a Pride event held at the White House.

Chappell Roan, also known as Kayleigh Amstutz, made this announcement during her performance at the Gov Ball Music Festival in New York City, where she dedicated her song «My Kink Is Karma» to the White House.

«I dedicate this song as a response to the White House, who asked me to perform for Pride», Chappell Roan said according to CBS Austin. «We want liberty, justice and freedom for all. When you do that, that’s when I’ll come».

Earlier in the concert, Roan expressed support for transgender people, «oppressed» people, «occupied» people and women while dressed as the Statue of Liberty.
