The vocalist took to Instagram to share the message that he has had a same-sex partner for the past eight years.

Josh Kiszka, the lead vocalist of American rock band Greta Van Fleet, publicly came out in an emotional Instagram post earlier today.

"Where I’ve settled a home in Tennessee, legislators are proposing bills that threaten the freedom of love," he wrote in the post, calling out the wave of anti-LGBTQ+ hate and legislation that has been sweeping the nation as of late, including in his home state of Tennessee. "It’s imperative that I speak my truth for not only myself, but in hopes to change hearts, minds, and laws in Tennessee and beyond."

"These issues are especially close to my heart as I’ve been in a loving, same-sex relationship with my partner for the past 8 years," he continued, though not labeling himself, saying that he has had a partner of the same sex for the past eight years.. "Those close to me are well aware, but it’s important to me to share publicly."

"Over the years, the outpouring of love for the LGBTQ+ community has been resounding, but there is still work to be done for LGBTQ+ rights in TN, the nation, and the world," he wrote, mentioning a list of organizations doing work in Tennessee and all over the country to help fight anti-LGBTQ+ hate. "In response to the exceptional support from my last post, I wanted to share how we can all continue to advocate for this valiant cause."

He concluded:

"The LGBTQ+ community is a cultural pillar, constantly championing positivity and acceptance through art, music, literature, film, and most importantly, legislation. The greatest mortal gift of all is our capacity to love and as we travel through time, may our greater understanding of the matter around and within us teach us to love ever deeper."

Congrats on publicly sharing your truth with the world, Josh. Welcome to the family!
