Recently, 17-year-old Actress and bona-fide young Activist Amandla Stenberg came out as bisexual. But while her statement was made publicly on Twitter, Stenberg doesn’t necessarily want to be defined by one term.
“I’m still kind of wary about specifically labeling myself,” she says while at the Sundance Film Festival to promote her new film, As You Are. “I don’t really see sexuality in boxes… I see myself on a scale.”
“Though now I’ve been labeled,” she adds with a laugh, “No one really cares.”
Truer words haven’t been spoken. Most people aren’t concerned with Amandla’s sexuality. They’re more focused on acting career, her beautiful mind and overall aura of quintessential cool.
“I feel like there’s no such thing as being too young to know how you identify,” says Stenberg. “People are born with their sexualities.”
Sexuality is not something you choose. https://t.co/XTbWHqEerl
