In a June episode of Red Table Talk Willow Smith shared her thoughts about “unconventional relationships” and opened up about her sexuality.

“I love men and women equally and so I would definitely want one man, one woman,” she said. “I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people. I’m not the kind of person that is constantly looking for new sexual experiences. I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I were to find two people of the different genders that I really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I don’t feel like I would feel the need to try to go find more.”

The YouTube star, Lilly Singh wrote a casual tweet in February, ticking off boxes on a list reading “female, coloured, bisexual.”

“Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers,” she added. “No matter how many ‘boxes’ you check, I encourage you to do the same x.”

 

Dan Howell

This June British YouTuber Dan Howell posted a long video on his channel called “Basically I’m ”.

Then he wrote on Twitter: “This really feels like a new chapter for me. I doubted all my life that the world would change to be a place I could personally feel open and accepted and that’s because of all of you. Thank you.”

 

Eugene Lee Yang

The popular influencer Eugene Lee Yang also posted an extremely beautiful, dramatic, artistic video called “I’m .”

Later, he told PRIDE: “I finally felt safe, I feel like every queer person has the moment where they are elegantly perfecting the craft of withholding just enough, and I realized I was doing that with the audience.”

During an interview with The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil, the Oscar-winning singer came out as genderqueer and non-binary.

“I’ve always been very free in terms of thinking about sexuality,” he said. “I’ve tried to change that into my thoughts on gender. You do not identify in a gender. You are a mixture of all these different things. You are your own special creation. That is how I take it. I am not male or female. I think I float somewhere in between—somewhat on the spectrum.”

 

Ariana Grande

After Ariana released the song “Monopoly,” where she sings “I like women and men,” many people thought that she has come out as bisexual.

One of her fans tweeted “Ariana ain’t gotta label herself, but she said what she said,” and Grande responded saying “I haven’t before and still don’t feel the need to now which is okay.”

In Fall 2018 Caitlin took part in the first same-gender kiss in the history of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and in April she came out as dating a woman.

“I have identified as a straight ally for a very long time, but recently my world has kind of opened up and I’m currently dating a woman and it is magical and new and exciting, and I’m loving it,” she told the fashion rag. “I’m who I am and I think that’s worth fighting for.”

In an April interview with The Advocate, the Pretty Little Liars star came out as bisexual.

“I’m queer. I’ve identified as bisexual since a teenager.”

He also talked about playing queer character on-screen:

“I knew this guy in and out. I understood feeling oppressed. I understood having issues with my father [wanting to feel] accepted by him. I understood wanting something but being afraid to have it. I understood self-doubt.”

In February, the British TV star Ryan Sampson received a homophobic direct message and then shared a photo of him and his boyfriend.

“I was on Instagram and I looked at my direct messages and it turned out someone was trying to rope me in to some (pretty creaky) homophobic banter,” he said in his tweet. “Huh! So, for clarity, here’s a pic of me and the boyf. Just to, y’know…straighten that one out. As it were.”

Happy Pride Month!
