JoJo Siwa is living her truth. The 17-year-old star apparently shared some personal news with her followers on Friday. On her social media accounts, Siwa shared a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt that reads, “Best. Gay. Cousin. Never,” thanking her cousin for gifting her the statement t-shirt.
Throughout the day, Siwa also retweeted and liked posts from fans and celebrities praising her for being a part of the LGBTQ + community.
“Dear @itsjojosiwa. I have never been more proud in my life!” Todrick Hall tweeted. “Happy for you and happy for how you are going to change the world. Children need to see this!”
Siwa too retweeted this message from a fan: “If you don’t think jojo siwa saying he’s gay is a big deal; just remember there are lgbt kids watching his videos who may have felt so alone with their identity and seeing the person they admire come out of the closet makes them feel more safe and comfortable with themselves “
Messages of support also came from Lil Nas X, Paris Hilton, Tana Mongeau, Colleen Ballinger, and others. ET has reached out to Siwa’s representatives.
This photo appears just days after Siwa first appeared on some positive LGBTQ TikToks, including a video with social media stars Kent Boyd, Mollee Gray, Garrett Clayton and Jeka Jane, who make up TikTok Pride House, dancing to “Ain’t It Fun” by Paramore.
“Now you [sic] one of us!! @itsjojosiwa @molleegray @ garrettclayton91 @jekajane #pridehousela, “Boyd captioned the video.
Siwa later shared a video of herself proudly singing Lady Gaga’s LGBTQ anthem “Born This Way.”
Then on Thursday, Siwa shared a photo of herself on Instagram with the caption, “You make me HAPPY !!!”
ET recently caught up with Siwa last month, when she gave us a tour of her epic houses for Christmas decorations. During our chat, Siwa told us that she is “single as a Pringle” and that dating was not a priority in her life, but that she was not opposed to it if they appeared.
“My life is so settled … My career is like, ‘Boom, this is what’s happening,’ and I have to keep moving on that path. And for me, on the relationship side, it’s more just like something. fun, “he said. “If it does, great. And if it doesn’t, great too. I have so much with what I’m doing right now that if anyone wants to join the party, I’m depressed!”
As for what she wants in a partner, Siwa shared: “In a couple of words: nice, cares about me and is there for me through thick and thin … The most important thing to me is someone to whom He genuinely, really, really cares about me. “
