In a recent TikTok, JoJo Siwa can be seen singing along to an LGBTQ anthem that has been used for millions of comings out and it first sparked the rumors of her sexuality. “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga is known worldwide as anthem for those in the LGBTQ community.
In 2020, JoJo announced her relationship with Mark Bontempo on TikTok. The pair appeared loved-up until their breakup in November of that year. Of course, now we see that JoJo is not only moving on, but she’s finally coming to terms with her identity, and we stan!
After that certain TikTok, JoJo shared a present that her cousin got her which reads: “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.” She shared that she’s not ready to officially label her sexuality, but she’s proud and happy she’s finally “come out”. Celebrities including Paris Hilton & Ellen DeGeneres supported the influencer on social media.

In an Instagram Live, JoJo Siwa spoke about her recent news and shared that she’s “never been this happy.” “Right now, I’m super duper happy and I want to share everything with the world, I really do, but I also want to keep things in my life private until they are ready to be public,” she added.
JoJo Siwa also said she had “always believed that my person was going to be my person and if that person happened to be a boy great and if that person happened to be a girl great.” According to the dancer, coming out is different for everyone and used to have “this stigma around it – that it’s a really, really, really scary thing, but it’s not anymore”.
Fans reactions have embraced JoJo’s announcement with open arms. There have even been calls for JoJo Siwa to replace Ellen DeGeneres.
