Taylor Bennett has supported LGBT community, including Chicago's Pride Action Tank

Chicago, IL - Chance the Rapper's younger brother Taylor Bennett has come out as bisexual.

On the eve of his 21st birthday, the hip-hop artist took to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to write, "Growing up I've always felt indifferent about my sexuality and being attracted to one sex and today I would like to openly come out to my fans."

He continued, "I do recognize myself as a bisexual male & do & have always openly supported the gay community & will keep doing so in 2017."

In October, Bennett teamed up with Leghorn Chicken chef Jared Van Camp to create a chicken and waffle sandwich, with sales benefiting Pride Action Tank, an LGBTQIA advocacy group focused on housing, health and safety of Chicago-area youth.

Later this month, Bennett will premiere a short film about his debut album, 2015's Broad Shoulders, and he's also said he'll release a new EP sometime next month. 

His brother Chance has yet to comment.
