A few months ago, singer and dancer JoJo Siwa sent waves through the Internet when she confirmed that she is part of the LGBTQ+ community. More recently, the 17-year-old star sat down for an interview with People and clarified her identity as pansexual. Since coming out, the star has been more and more vocal about supporting the LGBTQ+ community. 

While assuring her need to still “figure it out,” Siwa said, “I don’t know, bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, straight. I always just say gay because it just kind of covers it or queer because I think the keyword is cool…I like queer. Technically I would say that I am pansexual because that’s how I have always been my whole life is just like, my human is my human.”

GLAAD defines a person who is pansexual as “a person who has the capacity to form enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attractions to those of any or all genders. Pansexual people are typically considered part of the bisexual community.”

JoJo Siwa has embraced her identity with open arms and fiercely advocates for LGBTQ+ people. Most importantly, she has come out as a shining example to her young fans that it is okay to be who you are and love who you love. She recently made this clear while presenting the award for Outstanding Children’s Programming at the GLAAD Media Awards. 

She said, “I have the best, most amazing, wonderful girlfriend in the entire world who makes me so, so, so happy.” This is in reference to her girlfriend, Kylie, who has appeared on Siwa’s social media with the star. Advising her fans, the singer said, “If you want to fall in love with a girl, if you want to fall in love with a boy, if you want to fall in love with somebody who is a they, them or who is non-binary, that is incredible.” 

JoJo Siwa has wholeheartedly accepted who she is as an LGBTQ+ superstar. She is only the latest to show kids that who they love is okay no matter who it is and something that should bring pride.
