Many celebrities try their hardest to keep their sex lives a secret. Whether they crave their privacy or they just aren’t comfortable with coming out to the public, fans and the media should al-ways try their best to respect their privacy. Coming out to the world is not always an easy task. Many celebs are faced with ridicule and backlash once they announce they are a member of the LGBTQI community, so it’s understandable why some celebrities would feel apprehensive about living their truth.
The LGTBQI community is growing, and with the nation’s new ruling on same-sex marriages, more and more celebrities are feeling comfortable with finally coming out. Many celebs don’t share the news in the form of a press release or through an exclusive sit-down interview. Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and ambiguous quotes in magazines have been the preferred way to come out for many stars.
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’ daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, came out as sexually fluid through a friend’s Instagram feed. In the post, the friend said Lily-Rose took part in a project called Self Evident Truths, because she identified herself as being on the LGBTQI spectrum. Johnny Depp later gave Lily-Rose his public support by saying he already knew about her
sexual identity, and he was “so proud” of her for finally coming out to the world.
A quick Twitter post has been the way many celebrities have announced their coming out status. Disney star Rowan Blanchard simply entitled her tweet, “Aye!,” before proceeding to say she isn’t interested in labels to identify herself, she rather just exist. She now calls herself “queer,” and says she is open to liking any gender.
Mara Wilson, the actress who starred in the movie “Matilda,” came out on Twitter after the
deadly Orlando nightclub shooting back in June 2016. The actress said the LGBT community has always felt like home for her, and in the past few years, she had “learned something” about herself. She then proclaimed she was a 2 on the Kinsey scale, which is defined as:
predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual.
James Franco and Kristen Stewart are two actors whose sexualities have been hot topics of for years. James finally decided to come out during a magazine interview where he defined himself as “a little gay.” It’s still a bit of an ambiguous announcement, but perhaps it will be enough for the media to stop questioning him about his sexual preference.
Kristen was a bit more blunt when she announced she was in love with her girlfriend, Alicia Cargile. In the past, Kristen shielded her relationship with fellow actor, Robert Pattinson. But these days, she’s all about being more open to the public about her lesbian relationship
because it has made her a much happier person.
