The message was posted alongside a series of images of Maren performing during a show from her RSVP Redux tour in Phoenix, Arizona. In some of the images she can be seen holding and waving a Pride flag.Β 

The comments section of the post were flooded with congratulatory messages. Among the happy comments was a message from indie folk singer Allison Ponthier wrote; β€œHAPPY PRIDE!!!!! thanks for being an inspiration and what a special pride this one is πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ€β€.Β

Before coming out, Maren has been a vocal ally to the queer community throughout her career in country-pop.Β 

In 2022, she called out the wife of the country singer Jason Aldean for transphobic comments, commenting: “It’s so easy to, like, not be a scumbag human? Sell your clip-ins and zip it, Insurrection Barbie.”
