There’s been an increase in the last few years of celebrities opening up about their sexuality and how they identify — and that’s pretty awesome, if you ask us. It’s seriously so inspiring to see them so confident in their own skin and not afraid to embrace the real them.
While some stars have come out as gay, bisexual or transgender, other stars prefer not being categorized at all when it comes to their sexuality or gender. They’re shutting down the idea that they need to identify themselves in any particular way and are rejecting labels altogether for more all-encompassing terms and descriptions.
Take Paris Jackson, for example. She recently opened up about her sexuality, and she said she did not want to label it.
“I don’t feel like there is a label for my sexuality that fits,” she told People Magazine. “Labels in general, not just for sexuality but for everything, I think, are just ways for humans to make sense of the world, to be able to compartmentalize … We’re getting past the need for labels. It’s beautiful.”
And she’s not the only one to say goodbye to labels. More stars like Tana Mongeau, Lauren Jauregui, Cara Delevingne, Sam Smith, Shay Mitchell, Bella Thorne, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Sophie Turner, Bebe Rexha, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles and more have also chosen not to define themselves.
