Justin Bieber Supports Queer Fan Struggling With LGBTQ Inclusivity in Religion: ‘That Breaks My Heart For You’

A new video of Justin Bieber surfaced on Monday night (June 11), and it shows him comforting a fan who opened up about the struggle to find a church that is inclusive towards people in the LGBTQ community.

The two minute clip appears to show Bieber taking photos and answering questions from fans, following his church service. One fan asks the singer how the service went and whether his church is accepting of the gay community.

“Isn’t your church like really inclusive, like, of the gay community?” the fan asks. Bieber, who attends Hillsong Church, replies that it is, and that anyone can come.

The fan then opens up to the singer about how they grew up as Catholic, but haven’t attended church in a while. “I’m trying to find a place that is like, inclusive of everybody, ’cause I came out as queer not long ago. So, I’m trying to find a nice place. ‘Cause, like no one is nice. Everybody is so homophobic,” adds the fan.

Bieber responds that he was sorry, and invites the fan to attend one of his church’s services in the future.

“Yeah, that breaks my heart for you. I’m so sorry. That’s not okay,” Bieber says. “If you ever want to come to any of the services, any of them would love to have you. We’d love to have you in there, you’re more than welcome to come any time.”

The exchange concludes with Bieber hugging the fan. Watch the short clip below.
