‘Rue’ from ‘The Hunger Games’ Comes Out as Bisexual (VIDEO)
Amandla Stenberg who played “Rue” on “The Hunger Games” and was recently on the cover of Teen Vogue has come out as bisexual on SnapChat.
Stenberg took over the official SnapChat of Teen Vogue where she made the announcement.
She said: “It’s a really, really hard thing to be silenced and it’s deeply bruising to fight against your identity and to mold yourself into shapes that you just shouldn’t be in.”
“As someone who identifies as a black bisexual woman, I’ve been through it, and it hurts, and it’s awkward and it’s uncomfortable, but then I realized because of Solange and Ava Duvernay and Willow and all the black girls watching this right now, there is absolutely nothing to change. We cannot be suppressed. We are meant to express our joy and our love and our tears and be big and bold and definitely not easy to swallow.”
