Without so much as revealing her nickname for her “perfect” girlfriend, JoJo Siwa gushed over the girl and explained how she gave her the courage to come out to the LGBTQ community.
She told Fallen on last night Tonight Show she is in a long distance relationship with “the most amazing, wonderful, perfect, most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world.” She explained how her girlfriend helped her come out to the world after her collaboration with TikToker collective Pride House. “It’s not something I’m ashamed of, I just haven’t shown the internet yet,” she said. “And there’s always been speculations, of course, but I was like, ‘I think this is gonna out me.’” So, once fans started guessing (correctly), she decided to tease them a little more, with a lip sync to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.”
The next day, while on the phone with her girlfriend, she remembered a photo she had of her “Best Gay Cousin Ever” T-shirt, posted on her Close Friends Instagram Story a week prior. “We were both like, ‘Technically, I still haven’t confirmed it,’” the Dance Moms star recalled.
“So I was like, ‘I kinda just want to post this picture on my real Story,’ and she was super encouraging. She was like, ‘Do it!’ And I was like, ‘All right,’ and I did it.” The response was overwhelmingly positive, nothing less for the kids’ star. Siwa also revealed that she’s filming a Nickelodeon musical called The J Show based on her life inspiring others to be themselves. “But if I lost everything I created because of being myself and because of loving who I want to love, I don’t want it,” she told Fallon. “That’s not what I want if I can’t love who I want to love.”
I’m still so proud. Good for her and for her fans who support her.
