For many, it is still hard to come out and reveal their sexuality. Mostly, they people face the social pressures that come before and after the revelation and even though many are coming out, more than any moment in history, many more need that encouragement.
So when a star, a role model and an icon comes out in a way that’s not overrated but just simple, under the radar, somewhat casual gives it more meaning that it is not something to be made an issue out of.
That’s what former Disney star and the reigning teen queen, Bella Thorne did. Previously dating co-star Gregg Sulkin, Bella revealed that she was bisexual. Having broken up with Gregg, Bella posted a picture of herself kissing another girl. This made one fan on Twitter ask her about her sexuality.
Bella, in one simple tweet revealed that she was bisexual. Her one simple yes caused a major celebration on Twitter. Her six million followers have retweeted her tweet over 15,000 times and it has been liked on the social media site over 30,000 times.
