YouTube star Lilly Singh (a.k.a. iisuperwomanii) took to Twitter on February 24 to share a few facts about herself, including that she’s bisexual. The best part? She’s calling it one of her superpowers. What a queen!
That’s right, you guys! The 30-year-old YouTube star shared an inspiring message on the social media platform, explaining that the things she used to think of as obstacles have turned into some of the things she likes and appreciates the most about herself.
After listing off the terms “female,” “colored” and “bisexual,” the comedian wrote, “Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers.”
But wait, there’s more. The internet star also encouraged her fans to embrace the things about them that are different, because those are also the things that make them special.
“No matter how many ‘boxes’ you check, I encourage you to do the same,” she tweeted, followed by five rainbow heart emojis.

No matter how many “boxes” you check, I encourage you to do the same x

Of course, fans are absolutely living for her inspiring tweet — especially since this is the first time she’s mentioned that she identifies as bisexual.
One fan wrote, “I commend you for your courage to speak your truth. I know it wasn’t easy for you, but just know that you have the love and support of so many people.”
Another fan simply responded by saying, “We TRULY stan!!!” Well, they’re not wrong!
In addition to the many supportive messages from fans were other sweet messages from other creators we know and love. Gabbie Hanna, for example, tweeted Lilly back about how happy she is that she finally felt comfortable enough to come out.
“Proud of you bbg. So happy you’re finally comfy enough to say this out loud!!!!!” she wrote.
