A$AP Rocky believes that he has helped the urban community become more accepting of homosexuality and gay culture. While A$AP himself has never claimed to be gay, he says that he was accused of homosexuality earlier in his career due to his fashion sense. He now believes that his look and approach helped people become more open-minded.
"We made it cool - I kicked down the door for kids that's my age, older and younger, to be able to wear Jeremy Scott sneakers, rips in their jeans and not feel gay," he said. "That's what the society of the urban community tries to portray. If you do certain things like snug fashion, high-end fashion, other things that's not really in the criteria of the small state of mind of the urban community, you're 'gay.' Different is 'gay.' Weird is 'gay' where they come from. But they're slowly learning because of a guy named A$AP Rocky."
"That sh*t ain't gay. That's just different. That sh*t ain't gay. I'm a heterosexual man. I never been gay a day of my life. I used to be homophobic, but as I got older, I realized that wasn't the way to do things," he continued. "I don't discriminate against anybody for their sexual preference, for their skin color... That's immature. Not only that, not only do I know the difference between that, but I'm wise enough to know that that's just stupid and wrong, and I'm just trying to spread that to everybody. Yo, you don't have to worry about what he's doing. If he's gay, that's his business. Why does it matter? If you gay, why do you care? I don't give a f**k about gay people. I don't! I don't give a f**k about straight people. I don't care. It don't matter to me. I'm getting b*tches, I'm getting money - not to get into my Hip Hop form, but that's just what it is. I'm just trying to set the bar that you can do what the f**k you want to do because the world is yours."
