A Central Florida community advocacy organization got a little love from Lil Nas X this week.

The rapper listed local group Bros in Convo on the "Baby Registry" released on Tuesday to celebrate the birth of his new "baby," aka upcoming album Montero.

But instead of asking for the usual baby essentials, Lil Nas X is asking that you donate to the 15 charity, community and activist organizations listed, one corresponding to each of the album's tracks. Bros in Convo made the list alongside groups like the Bail Project and Transinclusive Group.


Bros in Convo is a "Black Queer-led org promoting and providing health equity to Black gay, bisexual, queer, and same gender loving men in Central Florida."

Montero, meanwhile, is Lil Nas X's hotly anticipated debut album, complete with guest spots by Elton John, Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat.

"Thank you @lilnasx for having @brosinconvo as one of the organizations on your Montero Baby Registry and believing in our work to better the lives of Black gay, bisexual, and queer men.," read a grateful post on the Bros in Convos' Instagram on Tuesday.

Montero drops on Sept. 17. View the full baby registry at welcometomontero.com.
