While being interviewed for PEOPLE’s annual World’s Most Beautiful issue, Amandla Stenberg talked about the constraints of the gender binary and the fluidity of gender identity.

I tend to believe that gender as we’ve set it up in current-day society doesn’t actually exist. I’ve said before that I’m comfortable with using the pronouns ‘they’ or ‘them’ alongside ‘she’ and ‘her’ just because that’s a conversation that’s important to me. I don’t necessarily always subscribe to female pronouns just because I don’t think that pronouns are necessarily very meaningful.”

Ruby Rose has also been honoured, and she embraces her sexuality in the issue.

I’m very confident and in tune with my sexuality. I feel very blessed for that, because in different places around the world, people can’t be.”

Wall Street isn’t necessarily known for being gay-friendly. Yet Goldman Sachs is now asking prospective employees to come out as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender right when they apply for the job.

Anilu Vazquez-Ubarri, Goldman’s chief diversity officer and global head of talent, says

We ask for this data because we want to keep ourselves accountable,”

In other words, she says, the bank wants to make sure it is not unfairly discriminating against LGBT applicants. (Fortune)

 

Bella Thorne Talks Fame, Love And Wanting To Date Kristen Stewart

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, 19-year-old actress / singer, Bella Thorne, discussed her sexuality and dating since announcing she was bisexual last year.

I’ve done other stuff with girls, but I really want to actually date a girl. Maybe girls just don’t like me…. I can’t tell if a girl is hitting on me or she just wants to be friends. And I don’t want to flirt with a girl if she thinks I’m just being her friend. What if I kiss a girl and she’s like ‘Oh, I’m just your friend dude, I can’t believe you just crossed that boundary.’ I’m confused on what they want from me.”

When pressed on who she would like to date, Thorne suggested Kristen Stewart as a good option.

She’s so hot. She seems like the raddest chick, I’d be so down.”

As for her dating now, Thorne said she is “single as f—,” though not by choice exactly.

I could not be more single. This is the longest I’ve been super single,” she said. “There are so many unwritten rules about dating which I don’t like. I’d rather be super faithful and give my all to one person. I don’t like having my phone blown up by a bunch of different guys where I don’t really know where I stand with any of them. It sucks.”

10 Celebrities Who Came Out This Year

Whether you admit it or not, we’ve all had quite a rough year one way or another. If it wasn’t evident in the first quarter, now that we’re nearing the end, we can pretty much assume how bad it’s gotten. But it ain’t all gloomy, screwed news. Some of our faves took time to bring about positivity through their coming outs.

Let’s rejoice and remember that life has its ups and downs, but these are one for the books.


1. Kristen Stewart

kristen-stewart-1

The Still Alice star came out mid this year after revealing in an interview with Elle UK how in love she is with her then girlfriend, Alicia Cargile. It’s been speculated many times now because of the way the actress behaves and how she likes representing herself, but more so because she skirts around questions that required any labels.


2, Miley Cyrus

miley-cyrus

Cyrus, in an interview with Variety earlier this year, stated how she “didn’t really feel straight” and “didn’t really feel gay” either. “It’s because I’m not,” she says. The former Hannah Montana protagonist identifies as pansexual and even recounts her first relationship to be with a “chick”. Miley says she would never let anyone put her identity in a box.


3. Lily-Rose Depp

This 17-year-old is using social media to spread awareness. Not only did she come out as sexually fluid via Instagram, she’s also part of the Self Evident Truth Project. This is a photographic document of 10,000 people in the USA that identify as anything other than 100% straight.


4. Bella Thorne

The former Disney star doesn’t want frills and cheap thrills. She’s all about getting straight to the point and just coming right out – quite literally. A fan asked her on twitter if she was bisexual to which she answered, “yes”.


5. Bex Taylor-Klaus

The Scream actress came out to the rest of the internet in a very casual tweet, followed by a YouNow stream addressing further questions. Taylor-Klaus revealed the reason for coming out this way, “So I have a chance to interact with those of you who feel that way and who kind of want to know more.”


6. Holland Taylor

Speaking with WNYC, Holland Taylor revealed she was in a serious relationship with a woman. When asked if she wanted to elaborate on her sexuality, she responded, “I haven’t come out because I am out. I live out.”

Turns out that lady was Sarah Paulson, and ever since the couple has been very out with their relationship.


7. Mara Wilson

In the wake of the devastating mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, Mara Wilson took to Twitter to come out of the closet in June 2016. The Matilda star confirmed to fans via a series of tweets that she’s bisexual, and after receiving a flurry of responses signed off the site, saying, “Thank you so much to everybody who has sent me words of support. I support you all, too.


8. Aubrey Plaza

Aubrey Plaza

Plaza revealed earlier in 2016 that gender “isn’t a factor” for her when it comes to dating and romantic relationships. She did not call herself a bisexual, but she did say that she has a very “androgynous and masculine” aura about her, and that tends to attract many different kinds of people, which she is totally cool with.


9. Amandla Stenberg

Amandla Stenberg

Amandla Stenberg came out in a heartfelt video in early 2016 to tell the world that she was “a black bisexual woman” and that she understands the discrimination and hate that is being flung at the LGBTQ community. She said that she feels the pain and that it hurts, and she wants to be an advocate for change and acceptance.

Given her reputation and presence in the teenager public sphere, Stenberg talked to Teen Vogue via SnapChat to interact with the magazine and its readers. She feels so much better now that she doesn’t have to hide or limit who she is and how she really feels. Citing other black actresses and singers, Stenberg said that she was getting loads of support from the Hollywood community and that she was extremely grateful for that.


10. Rowan Blanchard

14-year-old actress Rowan Blanchard spoke up at the start of 2016 and proclaimed that she did not want to be tied down by any labels in regards to her sexuality. Blanchard used Twitter to declare to the world that she was not interested in sticking a label on herself or her identity, but that she preferred to just be known as a queer actress. In her Tweet, the actress wrote: “I personally don’t wanna label myself as straight, gay, or whateva so I am not gonna give myself labels to stick with – just existing.” She is “open to liking any gender,” and that is why she identifies as queer.

The star of the Disney Channel TV series Girl Meets World public statement could be the shifting of tides when it comes to the Disney Channel and its reputation for employing straight-laced and clean cut child and teenage actors.

10 Quotes To Inspire (And Reassure) Anyone Worried About Discussing Their Sexuality

Today marks the 28th anniversary of National Coming Out Day.

For some, coming out to even their nearest and dearest can feel like a scary task; for others, almost an insurmountable challenge.

But the last year has been an excellent one for LGBTQ visibility, with a number of high-profile figures speaking honestly and forthrightly about their sexuality and same-sex relationships.


1. Miley Cyrus

Miley-Cyrus-01

My whole life, I didn’t understand my own gender and my own sexuality. I always hated the word ‘bisexual,’ because that’s even putting me in a box. I don’t ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl. Also, my nipple pasties and sh– never felt sexualized to me. My eyes started opening in the fifth or sixth grade. My first relationship in my life was with a chick.”


2. Ellen Page

Being in the closet hurt my career way more than being out and being happy and feeling inspired again; being able to fuse my authentic self with my creative interests.”


3. Mara Wilson

I used to identify as mostly straight. I’ve embraced the Bi/Queer label lately.

The LGBTQ community has always felt like home, especially a few years later when I, uh, learned something about myself.”


4. Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart

When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialised, so I didn’t like it. We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that.

But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it, so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I’m so much happier.”


5. Amanda Stenberg

Amandla Stenberg

It’s a really, really hard thing to be silenced and it’s deeply bruising to fight against your identity and to mould yourself into shapes that you just shouldn’t in.

As someone who identifies as a black, bisexual woman, I’ve been through it and it hurts and it’s awkward and it’s uncomfortable…but then I realised because of Solange and Ava DuVernay and Willow [Smith] and all the black girls watching this right now that there’s absolutely nothing to change. We cannot be suppressed. We are meant to express our joy and our love and our tears and be big and bold and definitely not easy to swallow.”


6. Holland Taylor

Holland Taylor

It’s awkward because if I talk about relationships in my life or people that have been in my life … I’d like to be able to just say that, without having to stop and say, ‘so have you come out?’ No, I haven’t come out because I am out. I live out.”


7. Eva Gutowski

It’s awkward because if I talk about relationships in my life or people that have been in my life … I’d like to be able to just say that, without having to stop and say, ‘so have you come out?’ No, I haven’t come out because I am out. I live out.”

Just because you haven’t dated someone of the same sex does not mean you can’t be taken seriously as a bisexual. I am ready for myself to fall in love with someone, no matter who they end up being, and have been since I was 12. Boy or girl.”


8. Rachel Maddow

The single best thing about coming out of the closet is that nobody can insult you by telling you what you’ve just told them.”


9. Bella Thorne

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.”


10. Sarah Paluson

Either you live your life in a very private way or you don’t, and I never have done that—ever—and I won’t do it going forward.

Bella Thorne Says She Feels “Free” Since Coming Out As Bisexual

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.

 

Bella Thorne Addresses The Misconception About Bisexuality

When fans questioned Bella Thorne’s sexuality after she posted Snapchats kissing her best friend Bella Pendergast back in August, she took the opportunity to bravely come out as bisexual (even though the two were just being friendly.)

Though the response to her coming out was overwhelmingly positive, she has continued to receive some comments from fans who are sceptical.

A Twitter user who goes by The Hornet tweeted at Thorne, asking how she really knows she’s bisexual if she hasn’t been sexually active with a female.

Thorne was quick to shut down the questioning by responding, “I didn’t say I hadn’t?”.

Thorne’s answer is a big reminder that we don’t have access to everyone’s personal lives, nor do we need it.

If someone identifies as bisexual, it’s no one’s place to ask if they’ve experienced same-sex sexual contact.

Also, having same-sex experience, or not having it, does not really say anything about someone’s identity.

Bella Thorne’s Coming Out Inspired By Kristen Stewart Recent Openness

Last week, actress and social media celeb Bella Thorne casually revealed that she’s bisexual via twitter.

When a fan asked if Thorne is attracted to women as well as men, Bella replied simply, “Yes.”

The news was met with an outpouring of support from fans from Thorne millions of social media followers.

Reports have emerged in the wake of Thorne’s coming out, indicating that Kristen Stewart may have played a role in Bella’s decision to come out.

According to source;

Bella was inspired by her contemporary Kristen to reveal her sexual preference.

While she doesn’t know Kristen personally, Bella admires her bravery and the way she has dealt with the media intrusion with her personal life,” the insider claims.

Like Kristen, Bella feels we live in a day and age now where who you hook up with is irrelevant when it comes to your career.”

The source adds that Thorne looks up to K-Stew in more ways than one:

Kristen has thrived in recent years, making some bold career choices professionally and Bella sees her as a role model.”

Bella Thorne Reveals She’s Thankful For Support After Coming Out As Bisexual

This week, the actress surprised fans yesterday with one simple tweet

She did not elaborate on her answer, but quickly received an outpouring of support from fans on social media.

Thorne returned to social media to reveal how grateful she was for all the support.

Her latest tweets come more than a week after she mutually broke up with Wizards of Waverly Place star Gregg Sulkin after one year of dating.

They said in a joint statement: “After much thought and soul-searching, we have made the difficult decision to end our relationship.

We will always love each other and have a deep respect for one another, as we have each grown to be better people because of our time together. Our schedules made seeing each other difficult, and we decided that for now this would be best.”

As to why Bella decided to tweet about her sexuality, some fans are speculating that it’s because she recently shared a photo of herself kissing a girl.

Regardless of who she is and isn’t dating, fans are applauding the Hollywood star for her openness on social media.
