Hollywood actress and singer Janelle Monae spoke on stage March 2018 independent spirit award in Santa Monica. In her speech, the Dirty computer songstress identified as a queer female.

After several years of speculation, she revealed that she has previously “been in relationships with both men and women.” According to Janelle, she formally identified as bisexual “but then later I read about pansexuality and was like: ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too. I’m open to learning more about who I am.”

Demi Lovato

The famous sorry not sorry singer who checked into rehab recently following a drug overdose had revealed as at last year that she was open to dating females, claiming “that’s how I’ve always felt”.

However, in March this year, Demi finally revealed her true feelings about her sexuality, saying that “I’m very fluid, and I think love is love. You can find it in any gender. I like the freedom of being able to flirt with whoever I want.”

He added: “I guess you could qualify me as pansexual because I really don’t care. If a person is great, then a person is great. I just like good people, if your heart’s in the right place.”

Jason Mraz

Anne-Marie said: “I’ve never just been attracted to men. I’ve never just been attracted to women. I’ve never felt the need to tell anyone that I’m bisexual. I don’t feel like I am. I just feel like I’m attracted to who I like. I honestly feel like everyone is like that.”

In the Video, the actor stated that: “I wanted to tell everyone that I am gay, and although that doesn’t change anything for me, and hopefully not for you, I just thought it was a critical thing to share with everyone.”

Adding that: “I wanted to do this video as well because when I think about all the kids out there that are being bullied or are really struggling with their sexuality, even teenage or adults, I just want you to know that you are not alone.”

Andrea Russett

Andrea Russett wouldn’t have come out as Bi-sexual just yet if she wasn’t motivated by her best friend who told her that she was convinced BI-sexual people to end up in hell.

Andrea come out with her sexuality last month saying “I came out to Sandra as bisexual four years ago. (Surprise! Yeah. Not exactly how I planned to come out publicly, but s**t happens I guess),”

She added that she would love to inform “anyone who is struggling with anything similar in their life, you are not alone. You are not any less of a person because of who you may choose to love.”

Tadd Fujikawa

Tadd became the very first professional golfer to identify as gay. According to him, he hopes his story would motivate other members of the LGBT+ community.

“So… I’m gay. Many of you may have already known that. I don’t expect everyone to understand or accept me. But please be gracious enough to not push your beliefs on me or anyone in the LGBTQ community. My hope is this post will inspire every one of you to be more empathetic and loving towards one another.”

There you have it. These are only twelve from the lot, so if you are seeking motivation before you come out, you have people to look up to.
