Donning his very best hot-pink harness and tux look, the “Old Town Road” breakout singer took home Grammys in two categories: Best Music Video (“Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus) and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus).
But wait, there’s more! Pose star and previous Grammy winner Billy Porter was also in attendance, donning the campy lampshade headpiece to end all headpieces.

And gay country singer Orville Peck attended, too, as Diplo’s date. This look, y’all!
Lil Nas X wasn’t the only queer artist to win big last night. Other LGBTQ nominees who scored Grammys include rapper Tyler, the Creator, who won Best Rap Album (Igor); pop queen Lady Gaga, who nabbed Best Song Written for Visual Media (“I’ll Never Love Again”) and Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media (the A Star Is Born soundtrack); DJ Tracy Young, who became the first lesbian producer to win Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical (Madonna’s “I Rise”); and country crooner Brandi Carlile, who took home Best Country Song (Tanya Tucker’s “Bring My Flowers Now,” which Carlile co-wrote).
