Supporting And Campaigning For LGBTQ Charities

Jade has shown her understanding for the importance of using her platform to campaign and spread awareness for LGBTQ charities such as Stonewall, taking time out of recording LM5 a few years back to attend the Stonewall Youth Awards where she presented an award and helped raise awareness and understanding.

People flocked to praise the singer for 'dropping everything' and Jade told Stonewall: "I want to encourage more artists to raise the flag as allies to the LGBTQ community and help people accept themselves". 

Yaaas queen.

Gave A Fan The Confidence To Come Out...

One Little Mix fan reached out to the band to tell them that the group, and especially Jade's support, gave him the confidence to come out to those around him, in the most heartwarming exchange of messages we think we've ever read!

Little Mix's Music Video With Cheat Codes, 'Only You'

Little Mix dropped a single with Cheat Codes in 2018 called 'Only You' and people were completely shook, for all the right reasons, when the video dropped. The video features a lesbian love story between a girl and a mermaid, and they've been hailed as 'pride queen's' for giving exposure to an LGBTQ love story, something that is rarely shown in the mainstream media.

She's A Total Drag Fanatic

As well as supporting the LGBTQ community, she's also totally invested in drag culture.
So it was no surprise when she was picked as a guest judge on RuPaul's Drag Race UK season one.
Jade even spent a birthday at a Drag bar in LA – and even went to Drag Con to meet ALL the stars of RuPaul's Drag Race, including the very star of the show, look how happy she is here!


Proudly Flying The Rainbow Flag For Everyone To See

Jade's commitment to pride and immersing herself into the LGBTQ+ community can be seen throughout everything she does, whether it's flying the pride flag through her outfits or on her social media, she even threw a drag themed birthday party, literally wearing one massive rainbow and raised money for 'Stonewall', a LGBTQ+ charity in the process, we mean, how much more of a god damn icon can you be?! 

Nothing but respect for our LGBTQ ally and queen <3.
