Writing for Billboard, the K-pop artist said she wanted to give “thanks” and express her “love” to the LGBTQ community for having given a great amount of “love, beauty, inspiration, and light in every corner of the world.”
The singer, who recently released the single “Over My Skin” in the US under her new stage name, Tiffany Young, said she was inspired by some of the uplifting themes of the community including self-love, unconditional love, acceptance and freedom of expression, when she felt “culturally misunderstood” as a Korean-American.
In 2017, Girls’ Generation filmed a party-themed video for its single “All Night” with drag queens.
Tiffany was one of three members of Girls’ Generation who did not renew their contracts with S.M. Entertainment in October 2017. She inked a contract with Paradigm Talent Agency, which represents popular artists such as Diplo and Shawn Mendes, in June 2018.
