JoJo Siwa Says She’s Pansexual, Shares What She Loves About Girlfriend Kylie
Social media star and Masked Singer season three alum, JoJo Siwa, is proud to be part of the LBGTQ+ community. In a new interview, she talks about coming out, shares that she considers herself pansexual, and gushes about her girlfriend.
JoJo has over 12 million subscribers on YouTube, and more than 33 million followers on TikTok. She previously appeared on the reality series Dance Moms. Read on to find out what JoJo had to say about coming out.
JoJo Siwa Talks About Coming Out
Fans began speculating that JoJo was a member of the LGBTQ+ community after she posted a TikTok video of herself lip-syncing to Lady Gaga’s song “Born This Way.”
Then, in January of this year, JoJo posted a photo of herself wearing a shirt that read, “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.” The 17-year-old said her cousin gave her the shirt. Fans were quick to share their support for the star.
In a new interview with People, she said she’s known she was LGBTQ+ “since I was little.”
She also knew that it was risky to come out, saying, “I have a lot that could have gone away because of my love life.”
Although the negative comments got to her at first, JoJo shared that she’s “so proud to be me.”
“I’ve never gotten this much support from the world. I think this is the first time that I’ve felt so personally happy,” she said.
JoJo Announces She’s Pansexual
After coming out on social media, JoJo revealed that she’s dating 18-year-old Kylie Prew who she met while on a cruise. However, she told People she’s been hesitant to put a label on her sexuality.
“I still don’t know what I am. It’s like, I want to figure it out. And I have this joke. Her name is Kylie. And so I say that I’m Ky-sexual,” JoJo said. “But like, I don’t know, bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, straight. I always just say gay because it just kind of covers it or queer because I think the keyword is cool.”
“I like queer,” she continued. “Technically I would say that I am pansexual because that’s how I have always been my whole life is just like, my human is my human.”
JoJo Gushes About Girlfriend Kylie Prew
Jojo and Prew started their relationship as friends before getting romantic in late 2020. When they first met, JoJo said she told Prew everything about herself.
“She goes, ‘I could have Googled that. I want to know your life story. You just told me about your career. I want to know about you,'” JoJo recalled to People. “And I was like, No one’s ever asked me that before.”
“She never cares what the internet said about us,” the star shared. “It’s nice to have somebody in my life like that.”
