Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui Says She's Bisexual in Open Letter to Donald Trump Supporters
"I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it," Jauregui writes
Fifth Harmony band member Lauren Jauregui has confirmed she is bisexual.
In an open letter to Donald Trump‘s supporters, the singer reveals her sexual orientation in addition to condemning the president-elect.
“I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it. I am proud to be part of a community that only projects love and education and the support of one another,” Jauregui, 20, confirmed after a photo of her kissing another woman was leaked online earlier this week.
“To every single Trump supporter … Your words are worthless, because your actions have led to the single-handed destruction of all the progress we’ve made socially as a nation,” Jauregui, a Hillary Clinton supporter, wrote in her letter.
“If I could tell every Trump supporter two things, it would be to travel and read a history book. Look beyond yourselves, look at how petty the morals you uphold seem when you realize we are not the only ones,” she continued. “None of us belong here but all of us deserve the right to feel safe and live our lives in peace. To not have to worry about potentially dying, or being electro-shocked, or beaten, or raped, or emotionally abused because our existence and/or choices for ourselves upset someone else. This is the world Trump is fostering.”
After her letter went public, Jauregui took to Twitter to thank her 2.4 million followers tweeting, “Overwhelmed by love, thank you guys.”
Fifth Harmony is scheduled to perform at Sunday’s American Music Awards.
