Bella thorne, a former Disney star and teen icon, casually comes out as bisexual after sharing social media photos of her kissing another female.

The actress who starred in Shake It Up and Scream Queens was asked by a follower over Twitter about her sexual identity. 18-year-old Thorne casually and bluntly replied and affirmed her bisexuality with a simple, “Yes.” 

The query followed a photo post Thorne shared of her kissing a female on Snapchat.

Thorne gained notoriety while starring in Disney’s Shake It Up opposite Zendaya. The dance-centric show ran from 2010 – 2013. Thorne began acting and modeling when she was just six-weeks-old.

Along with a full slate of completed film projects, Thorne is starring in a new TV series, Famous in Love. From the creator of Pretty Little Liars, the new show co-stars So You Think You Can Dance legend Stephen “tWitch” Boss and is also set in the world of performers. Currently, the bi beauty is filming The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, alongside Jessica Chastain and Natalie Portman.

Thorne received an outpouring of positivity from her followers in response to her coming out publically. She thanked her online fans for their support in another post shared with her over six million Twitter followers.

The news has garnered a lot of reaction and comments. And while some haters are quick to diminish a young woman coming out as bisexual, Thorne’s visibility will no doubt impact the millions of young people who look up to her.

Welcome to the LGBTQ community, Bella!
