Jojo Siwa came out as gay and she received a lot of love and support on social media! This reveal about her sexuality came only a day after she gave a hint by lip syncing to Born This Way by Lady Gaga, a song well known as one of the anthems for the LGBTQ community.
The Dance Moms alumn got a lot of congratulatory messages after she bravely shared this part of her with the world, including from many friends and fellow celebs.
As for the way the dancer and influencer came out, it was a pretty original one!
Jojo decided to post a pic of herself wearing a T-shirt that reads: ‘Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever,’ revealing that ‘My cousin got me a new shirt.’
This means that her closest loved ones were already aware before she decided to come out publicly.
One of the well known names who reacted to the announcement was none other than Lil Nas X, who also revealed he is gay back in 2019.
The man wrote: ‘if u spell ‘swag’ backwards, it’s ‘gay’. coincidence??’
Furthermore, Colleen Ballinger, aka Miranda Sings, shared Jojo’s photo on her own platform and wrote alongside it: ‘I’ve known you a long time and this is the happiest I have ever seen you. You are absolutely glowing and I am so proud of the woman you’re becoming! love youuuu!’
As mentioned before, fans were already suspecting she’d subtly come out the night prior when she shared a video in which Jojo was singing along to the lyrics of ‘Born This Way’ by Lady Gaga.
The part she silently mimicked was: ‘No matter gay, straight, or bi / Lesbian, transgender life / I’m on the right track, baby / I was born to survive.’
YouTube makeup guru James Charles congratulated Jojo too, writing: ‘IM SO HAPPY FOR YOU.’
Other influencers who expressed similar sentiments were: Tatayanna Mitchell, Bretman Rock, and more!
