We may boast of being modern but when it comes to accepting the LGBTQ+ community, many still love to cling to their orthodox mentality. This situation is observed not only in India but across the world. Yes, even those parts where ‘pride’ is accepted with pride. However, embracing one’s sexuality is an essential thing and often the celeb leads the way by coming out of the closet. Recently, YouTuber Lilly Singh did the same!
With stage name Superwoman, she is a Canadian actress, comedian, and YouTube personality. She was ranked as one of the highest paid YouTubers in 2017.
Though a YouTuber, she also uses other platforms to stay connected with her fans. Hence, she took the help of Twitter to walk out of the closet. This is what she posted:
Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers.
No matter how many “boxes” you check, I encourage you to do the same x

Apt and brave! Not only she came out but also extended her support towards anyone who has something to share. We can all agree that it’s a sweet gesture.
Any idea how the fans reacted to this news? Were they filled with homophobia and slammed Lilly for her revelation?
The situation is quite opposite! The fans were more than elated about the fact that Lilly Singh chose to reveal her sexuality. They couldn’t stop congratulating her. There were also those who commented that they had an idea about her sexual orientation.
