Fans Furious That 5H Fave was “Outed” After She Was Pictured Kissing a Girl

By  | 

In the LGBTQ+ community, coming out marks a momentous occasion. Whether it be a positive or negative experience, the disclosure of one’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity can feel like a weight lifted off one’s shoulders. It should never be rushed, and it should always be done when the specific person feels comfortable in doing so. Sadly, that’s not always the case.

As we speak, fans of Fifth Harmony are in a state of shock and outrage, as one of the members of the group may’ve been outed. That member is Lauren Jauregui.

On Friday, November 11, the 20-year-old singer attended a family wedding for Erik Jauregui & Mia Almaguer. At that wedding, she took photo-booth pictures, as one does. And in one particular shot, she locked lips with female companion Lucy Vives. We’re not going to post any of the snapshots, because it doesn’t matter — what matters is that Harmonizers are furious that the brunette beauty was possibly outed as bisexual or as a lesbian:

This isn’t the first time rumors swirled that Lauren was interested in members of the female persuasion. Remember, in The Vamps‘ “I Found A Girl,” Lau’s ex-boyfriend, Brad Simpson, crooned, “I found a girl // Who’s in love with a girl // She said that she tried
But she’s not into guys // Oh, why, tell me why // Did I fall for those eyes? // She said I was nice // But she’s not into guys.”
So, many believed he was insinuating something about the 5H girl’s sexual orientation.

But also remember this — just because one girl kisses another girl doesn’t automatically mean she’s a lesbian or bisexual or, really, anything. No one should assume ANYTHING.
IF Lauren Jauregui was outed, then, sadly, she wasn’t the first one:
