a few of the most inspiring celebrity coming out messages
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (with wi-fi), you’ll know that today is #NationalComingOutDay. Yes, it’s a day for the LGBT community to come together and celebrate the moment they let everyone know, yes I am what I am. So we thought we’d take this opportunity to look at a few of the most inspiring celebrity messages on coming out.
No stranger to speaking her mind, the Wrecking Ball songstress recently came out as Pansexual. For the uninitiated, Pansexuality is the potential aesthetic, romantic or sexual attraction to anybody, regardless of their gender presentation.
“I’m very open about it,” she told Elle UK. “But I’m not in a relationship. I’m 22, I’m going on dates but I change my style every two weeks, let alone who I’m with.”
You do you, Miley.
The “Inception” and “Juno” star chose an amazing time to announce her sexuality, delivering a talk at the LGBT conference, Time To Thrive, in early 2014.
Taking to the stage, Ellen gave an impassioned speech on the importance of being out for people in the public eye.
"I'm here today because I am gay," Page told the audience, "and because maybe I can make a difference, to help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.
"I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain."
This time last year model-turned-actress, Cara Delevingne, took to Instagram to proclaim loud and proud that “we are you”.
The star went on to say, “Doesn't matter who you are or what you believe it, we are one! Go get yourself one of these shirts right now!”
One of the most high profile coming out stories in recent memory, Caitlyn Jenner announced her transition from male to female in style, appearing on the front cover of Vanity Fair with the simple message, “Call me Caitlyn.”
So whether you be LGBT* or not, get out there and show your support for those coming out today!
