YouTube sensation Lilly Singh was in full disclosure mode as she came out as bisexual recently and urged her closeted followers to do the same. Here's how they reacted
New Delhi: YouTuber Lilly Singh, better known as Superwoman, is a complete boss. And, she wants her followers to be as fearless as her, just like her book 'How to Be a Bawse.'
Singh recently came out as bisexual on social media and claimed it was her superpower, including being a female and an Indian. She took to Instagram to share a photograph of herself sans makeup and looking all gorgeous. She captioned the post, "Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers. No matter how many “boxes” you check, I encourage you to do the same x"
She shared the 'coming out' announcement on Twitter too and her fans responded with rainbow coloured messages, lauding her bold move. After all, if it not easy checking those three boxes and facing the society. Thankfully, the Interweb is a more inclusive place and it shows. With over 30 million followers encouraging her, check out her fans' responses:
