A Hunger Games Actress Makes a Huge Reveal About Her Sexuality
Last year, Miley Cyrus finally opened up about her attraction to males and females; now, the 19-year-old The Hunger Games fan-favorite, Amandla Stenberg, shared similar news on her sexual orientation during her Teen Vogue Snapchat takeover.
After revealing that she’s bisexual, the teen wanted to make sure her announcement was heard loud and clear. She took Twitter to let her fans now that she “shared something” on Teen Vogue‘s Snapchat and wanted “Bi black girls [to] unite” as a result.

In the video, which she shared on her Tumblr account, Amandla explained, “As someone who identifies as a black bisexual woman, I’ve been through it and it hurts. It’s awkward and it’s uncomfortable but then I realized because of Solange [Knowles], and India Aire and Willow [Smith], and all the black girls watching this right now, there’s absolutely nothing to change.” The former YA star left off saying, “Here I am, being myself and it’s hard and it’s vulnerable and it’s definitely a process that I’m learning.”
We’re sending virtual pats on the back to Amandla for allowing herself to be so brave and vulnerable. Check out her full video below:
Fans took to Twitter to sing their praises for the native Cali girl.
