In August, the former Disney star, Bella Thorne shared a Snapchat video showing her playfully kissing another woman on the lips.
Almost immediately, fans started asking her about her sexuality on Twitter, and Thorne confirmed she was bisexual.
Since then, she has done her part to increase bisexual visibility by living open and honestly, and this past Bisexual Visibility Day shared a touching message of love and encouragement to her fans as about embracing your true self.
Happy Bisexual Visibility Day! My best friend Bella and I went camping and made life time memories. Not only today but all days we should celebrate acceptance of others. Be who you want to be and it will take you to being your happiest self! #bivisibilityday.”
The actress shared many posts throughout the week to dispel myths about the bisexual experience ― like the idea those who identify as bi are “indecisive” or “confused.” She also encouraged her followers to “go kiss someone.”
Thorne also took over Galore magazine’s Snapchat feed for the day, where she was seen sharing a couple quick pecks with her female friends and urging her fans to embrace their sexuality.
