YouTuber Alex G just released a video that contains some pretty big news.
And it’s no coincidence today also marks National Coming Out Day. Alex took to her channel to let her followers know that she identifies as bisexual. In the video, she says “the last few years of my life have been a lot of self discovery, of growth, of transformation, of courage, of resilience, and just… I’m not sure if I said this, but change.”
Alex continues by laying it all out on the table as clearly as possible: “I am a bisexual, cisgender woman.” She says that she wants to represent a voice who identifies with having a bisexual orientation and join the conversation, as she has been learning more about “bi-invisibility,” which is defined as the tendency to ignore, remove, falsify, or reexplain evidence of bisexuality in history, academia, the news media, and other primary sources.
You’ll want to watch the whole video as she outlines her journey to finally embracing her sexuality openly, and we are so happy for her to have found freedom and we’re sure this will help in bringing more attention to the LGBTQ+ community and giving strength to others still struggling.
