Lucy Whittaker is a 20 year-old lesbian Electro Pop artist from the UK. We first introduced her here on AfterEllen in our 15 Lesbian, Bi, and Queer Musical Artists You Need to Know lineup. Last February she released the video for her latest single, ‘I’m Not Ever Coming Back Again’ which was introduced on BBC Radio 1 as their Track of the Week, and she has since garnered an international fanbase and is on our ‘one to watch’ list. We’re excited to be the first to premiere her new video for her newest EP ‘Take Me Away.’

Whittaker had a few words for her LGBT fanbase, and answered AfterEllen readers’ questions about being gay in the music industry today.

Being LGBT is tough, and it’s safe to say that the same thing applies in the music industry! Personally I’ve been told to keep quiet about who I am, or simply to lie about it in an effort to be ‘more accessible’, but I’ve realized that honesty is the best policy. Music is all about emotion, and I feel like people are more likely to connect with me if I’m honest – it makes the whole experience more personal and that’s incredibly important. I’m so proud to be representing my community through my music, and I’m so grateful for the support from my LGBT fans –  I hope they all love ‘Take Me Away’ as much as I do!”
