During the Q&A, she also revealed that the country's current political climate is what motivated her to live her truth and come out as gay. When the fan asked her if she was scared to say she was gay because of the presidential election she said she was “Terrified, absolutely terrified.”
I'm honored and a little dumbfounded by the overwhelming positive and supportive response 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🎉👽🤗😘https://t.co/b17XViV3aw— Bex Taylor-Klaus (@IBexWeBex) November 19, 2016
“Part of why I’m coming out is because there’s so much hate and fear in and around the LGBT community right now and it’s important for us not to halt progress out of fear. It’s a scary time, but we need to stand up and say, even if you are afraid, I’m not afraid, or even if I am afraid, I’m strong. I am who I am and you can’t take that away from me,” the actress said.
The official account for the MTV show even sent a little love to the star:
