For a new LGBT charity campaign, Lily Rose Depp has come out and revealed her sexuality.
Following the recent trend of people identifying as not 100% heterosexual, the model and daughter of Johnny Depp has made a subtle statement about her sexuality – by taking part in a quirky new campaign aimed at promoting society’s inclusiveness and acceptance of LGBT people in America.
Photographer iO Tillet Wright – who is behind the ‘Self Evident’ campaign – shared a picture on social media with Miss Depp, praising her decision to come out in order to help spread the campaign’s ‘We Are You’ message.
I’m so proud of my baby girl @lilyrose_depp. She decided she wanted to be in @selfevidentproject because she falls somewhere on the vast spectrum, and I couldn’t be happier to welcome her to the family. She’s a tiny gem of a good human. #prouduncle #weareyou.”
The Self Evident Truths project is a “photographic document of 10000 people in the USA that identify as ANYTHING OTHER than 100% straight.”
A number of other celebrities have leant their voice to the campaign including Sia, Kylie Minogue and Transparent star Gaby Hoffman.
Earlier this year, Lily Rose’s stepmother Amber Heard – who also features in the campaign – said she has had to “fight” for movie roles since she came out as bisexual.
The 29-year-old ‘Magic Mike XXL’ star – who came out as bisexual back in 2010, before she met her husband Johnny Depp in 2012 – said she didn’t want to be “defined by” her sexuality.
I don’t want to have to deny my sexuality in order to be me. But I don’t want to have to be defined by it. I’m fundamentally opposed to trying to edit myself to be palatable or popular. I don’t give a f**k. I fight, but I shouldn’t have to.”
