JoJo Siwa Comes Out, Confirms She's Part of LGBTQ+ Community

"Someone asked 'What label are you?' I have thought about this and the reason why I am not ready to say this answer is because I don't really know..."

"No matter gay, straight or bi / Lesbian, transgender life / I'm on the right track, baby / I was born to survive", she sang on the video.

She also joined LGBT+ TikTokers Mollee Gray, Jeka Jane, Garrett Clayton and Kent Boyd at the queer TikTok house, and performed a dance to Paramore's "Ain't It Fun", prompting fans to believe that Siwa was dropping some major hints about her sexuality. Time Magazine named her one of its 100 most influential people in 2020, with Kim Kardashian West writing of her at the time that "JoJo is never ashamed to be herself, which can be really hard to do in this industry, especially when you're so young".

Many stars including fellow LGBTQ+ members like Ellen DeGeneres, Lil Nas X, Todrick Hall and others showered Siwa with love and support following her coming-out post. If I can give you any advice, do what makes you happy.

She stirred more speculations as she flaunted a rainbow-colored bow in the video. "People as teenagers break up, you have a boyfriend or you have a girlfriend when you're 6 years old and you break up with them, you're not with them for forever", she said in the video. "She came out at the top of her career and I respect it so much", Torrey Mercer added.

JoJo Siwa has officially come out as gay. The T-shirt bears in bold, block letters "Best Gay Cousin Ever".

Following her news, Siwa was showered in love and support, and was trending on Twitter.

Whilst thousands of fans have taken to social media to congratulate Jojo following the big news, others weren't surprised at all.

We're so proud of JoJo and can't wait to see what she does next with her large platform - surely inspiring kids along the way.

The overwhelming amount of support she received came almost a year after she sparked dating rumors with a family friend, Elliott Brown.
