R&B artist Tinashe, who is bisexual, is set to perform in Central Florida Friday and Saturday. On Feb. 2 she’ll be in Tampa at The RITZ Ybor at 8 p.m. On Feb. 3 she’ll be in Orlando at Plaza Live at 8 p.m. 

The tour is promoting her new album, “BB/Ang3l.”

Tinashe is a modern day gay icon, with a devoted queer fan base. She was the cover star of the GAY TIMES magazine for their Autumn 2020 issue.

Tinashe has a long history of being a supporter of the LGBTQ community. In 2009, at only 16 years old, she was an advocate for marriage equality. She also is a vocal opponent of transphobia, calling out author J.K. Rowling on X (formerly Twitter) for her transphobic comments.

Speaking to Billboard at last year’s WeHo Pride, Tinashe had nothing but love for her queer fan base and expressed how the confidence in her music speaks to them.

“It’s just that sense of ‘unapologeticness’ and that bad bitch unapologetic energy,” she said.

She also expressed her love for her audience at Pride events due to their “great” energy and “ready to party” attitude.

Tinashe’s a vocal advocate for drag, as well. She talked about her love for drag queens performing to her music, and gave a shout out to the transgender and drag communities in her Billboard interview.

Noted for her unique blend of R&B and pop, Tinashe has garnered a massive following in recent years. Beginning her career with a string of independent mixtapes before signing to RCA, she met immediate success in 2014 with her debut single “2 On,” which peaked at No. 24 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is now certified platinum in the United States.

Her song “Needs,” off of her newest album, became a hit in many online music circles. It was named one of the best songs of 2023 by Pitchfork and is currently her third most streamed song on Spotify.

In 2019, Tinashe went independent with her album “Songs for You,” which increased her critical standing. She has since released two other albums independently, “333” and the aforementioned “BB/Ang3l,” to further acclaim.

Her tour kicked off Jan. 31 in Atlanta and is traveling across the East Coast throughout the first half of February. After Florida, her tour moves on to Washington, D.C.

Tinashe already has plans for new music in 2024, planning to release a second part to “BB/Ang3l” sometime this year.

More dates are expected to be added, including on the West Coast, although she is performing at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California in April and Australia in March.
