The 28-year-old American singer-songwriter first hinted about his sexuality back in June when he posted a TikTok video with the text: “When ur dating a girl but ur also a lil bit into men.” He further addressed it on the caption, writing:


“Does it have to be that big of a deal? I haven’t done much aside from kiss so tbh don’t wannna jump the gun but tbh i feel things and i don’t wanna pretend I don’t. :)”

Thereafter, Lauv recently posted another TikTok video with a text that reads:

“I’m gay, but I’m not gay, but I’m gay, but I’m not gay,” referring to not quite identifying with a singular label.

He also captioned:


“Something that’s been on this ol’ mind of mine.”

Moreover, the “I Like Me Better” singer opened up about his personal struggles and sexuality journey in one of his latest YouTube videos. 

“I’m going through an interesting time. For years, as you may know, I’ve struggled with OCD and anxiety really badly, and one of the things I’m obsessed about has been my sexuality,” he revealed.

Lauv further shared,


“It’s been something that, you know, without going into too much detail from like childhood and stuff, but more recently, like in my 20s, I’ve pushed it down a lot.

I felt like, ‘Okay, this is anxiety… it’s not exactly a real thing.’ Like I would feel feelings or like feel a connection or a vibe or desire or something and then would just shut it down.”

He also noted that he doesn’t have all the answers yet, but is working towards his goal of living a freer life. 

“It’s something that I’m exploring in my music, and exploring in my mind and going to be exploring in my life,” the “Love U Like That” singer expressed.

  1. I completely relate to trying to shut gay thoughts/feelings down and trying to ignore them. Once I finally was able to come out as gay is when I started feeling less anxiety and felt better overall. I hope you feel comfortable being gay soon my love. I love all his music and have been listening to his albums for a couple years now
