Amandla Stenberg is coming out (again), but this time as gay.
Hunger Games and Everything, Everything actor Amandla Stenberg is sharing that she's fallen in love with a new label.
The young star has played around with several different labels since she became famous for her role in the original Hunger Games and her viral video about cultural appropriation (which came out around this time three years ago).
Before this recent announcement, she has called herself queer, bisexual, pansexual, and gender fluid. On top of that, she’s created queer-centric projects such as the short film Blue Girls Burn Fast and a cover of Mac DeMarco’s “Let My Baby Stay.”
Now in an interview with Wonderland, she’s sharing that she identifies as gay.
While you can read that interview in print now and online on Monday, Stenberg gave a hint as to the contents of the conversation in a recent Instagram post.
In the post she states, “So happy to say the words Yep, I’m Gay in official print.”
She also added, “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.”
We look forward to giving the interview a full read.
