In a live-stream question and answer, she was asked about how she felt about coming out in today’s times. “Terrified, absolutely terrified,” she opened up. “Part of why I’m coming out is because there’s so much hate and fear in and around the LGBT community right now and it’s important for us not to halt progress out of fear.”
The pixie-haired star continued, “Yes, it’s a scary time, but we need to stand up and say, even if you are afraid, I’m not afraid, or even if I am afraid, I’m strong. I am who I am and you can’t take that away from me.”
She was soon flooded with support and love. “I’m honored and a little dumbfounded by the overwhelming positive and supportive response,” she replied.
