JoJo Siwa is thanking her fans for their support after coming out.
“There is so much love in the world and it is so incredible,” she said in a video uploaded on Saturday.
“I have never ever been this happy before,” Siwa continued. “You can all tell how happy I am.”
One fan did ask “what label are you?”
“I’m not ready to say this answer because I don’t know this answer. I think humans are awesome,” she said. “I want to share everything with the world but I want o keep things private in my life until they are ready to be made public.”
“Right now you guys know that no matter who you love, it is okay,” Siwa continued. “I think coming out has this stigma around it that it is a very, very scary thing but it’s not anymore. There are so many loving and accepting people out there.”
On Friday, Siwa has confirmed she was coming out after alluding to it in a TikTok video.
Siwa shut down speculation by sharing a snap of the t-shirt her cousin got her that read, “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.”

The post comes after she sang along to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” in a TikTok video. The song is often regarded as an LGBTQ anthem.
The TikTok video is now her most popular at 27.1 million likes and counting. Jenny McCarthy, James Charles, NikkieTutorials and more all praised her for coming out in the comments.
Earlier in the week, Siwa captioned a photo of herself in a rainbow Gucci jacket, “You make me HAPPPPPPPYYYYYYY!!!”
“Love you did 🤗,” Paris Hilton replied.
Twitter also blew up with support for the “Dance Moms” alum from Ellen DeGeneres to Lil Nas X. Check out more of the reaction below:
