Amandla Stenberg Bravely Comes Out As Gay

Amandla Stenberg just revealed she’s gay.

The 19-year-old actress took to her Instagram to make the announcement, which she also confirmed in an upcoming issue of Wonderland magazine.

“🏳️‍🌈✨ OUT & PROUD. ✨🏳️‍🌈 So happy to say the words Yep, I’m Gay in official print,” Amandla wrote.

She added, “Interviewed for @wonderland by someone I stan infinitely – the fiercest garbagio pop queen @kingprincess69. Thank you to KP for providing me with such a safe space to come out. We talk about gay sobbing, first encounters with lesbian masturbation, queer icons, Toni Morrison, disillusionment as a critical step, the art I’ve been working on, and the films that I have coming out this year.”

Amandla has always been open about sexuality and gender norms. Last year, she opened up about why she doesn’t always subscribe to female pronouns.

So happy for Amandla!
