What do we know about Steve Lacy's dating life?
Unfortunately for curious fans, Steve doesn't seem to be the type to actively update followers on what's going on in his dating life. The closest and most recent glimpse into that aspect of his life came on Mar. 3, 2022, when Steve posted a since-deleted snapshot on Instagram of him snuggled up to an unidentified man. Steve was sitting in his lap, but the other individual was not tagged or named.
What is Steve Lacy's sexuality?
What we do know is that Steve has suggested in the past that he has a fluid sexuality. Per Attitude, when an anonymous user asked Steve during a Tumblr chat whether he was bisexual or straight, he simply stated "I’m human."
Pressed even further by fans to reveal if he’d ever date a guy, he went on to say, "Sure, why not?"
Then, another anonymous user took things to another level, asking Steve why he has a "blatantly anti-black preference in partners." To this question, the singer had quite a bit to say.
"The reason for it all isn’t anti black … at all. growing up around black males, they were always my competitors," he led off by telling fans. "I never viewed or saw myself doing anything sexual with my neighbors ... I literally, like I said, see them as brothers. As much as you or whoever thinks this sounds like bulls--t, it’s from a real place."
Steve concluded his point by noting, "I’m a [n-word] from Compton; I don’t dislike black people, I prefer to live here and be around POC because I love black people, I’m just not attracted to black boys. That is it. I still love them and want them to do well in life, we just won’t date. Sorry."
