YouTuber Lilly Singh Comes Out as Bisexual

Canadian YouTube star Lilly Singh came out as bisexual on Twitter on Sunday (February 24).

In an inspirational post to her 5.75 million followers, Singh, better known to fans as Superwoman, called her sexuality, as well as her race and gender, her “superpowers,” encouraging fans to do the same.

“Female. Coloured. Bisexual. Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time,” she wrote. “But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers.”

Other LGBTQ YouTubers – Hannah Hart, who’s a lesbian; Shane Dawson, who’s bisexual; and James Charles, who’s gay – showed their support of Singh’s announcement.

Fans also responded with support and love, while also checking off the “boxes” that gave them superpowers.

Singh responded to the support Monday (February 25), tweeting, “Thank you so much for the love and positivity. Words can’t describe how much it means. I appreciate you all. Group hug.”
