Now we want even more new music from Diplo and Orville Peck together!

That’s what friends are for!

In March 2023, Diplo revealed in an interview for the High Low podcast that he’s received oral from a man and considers himself to be “not not gay.”

As a result, People asked out gay country superstar Orville Peck, who happens to be Diplo’s close friend and collaborator, how he felt about the music producer’s recent statements regarding his sexuality. Peck responded:

“I will say that he is a very sweet guy and he’s very open-minded, and I think he, just like any of us in the world, should be allowed the freedom and the space to explore whoever he is going to be or wants to be.”

“And none of us need to police it or worry about it,” Peck continued. “He can have his own path and journey.”

Since sliding into each other’s DMs to work on new music, Peck and Diplo became close friends and collaborators. In fact, Peck sang the intro to Diplo’s 2020 studio album Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley, Chapter 1: Snake Oil. Diplo and Peck have also been spotted hanging out several times at award shows and other events, showcasing that they get along very well and have a great friendship between them.

Even before Diplo admitted to his “sexual fluidity,” the music producer was always a vocal ally to the LGBTQ+ community, having collaborated with a wide array of queer artists over the years and going on to develop long-lasting friendships with them.
