The Hunger Games' Amandla Stenberg Comes Out As Bisexual

Amandla Stenberg has come out as bisexual during her takeover of TeenVogue‘s Snapchat.

The 19-year-old actress and activist shared in a video on her Tumblr later, “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.”

Amandla added, “Here I am, being myself and it’s hard and it’s vulnerable and it’s definitely a process that I’m learning.”

    Another girl telling guys what they want to hear, sure I’ll be with girls for your pleasure, but you notice men never come out as bisexuals.

  • Baseliner

  • VanityInsecurity

    um.. black girl? does she realize she’s half white/native also.. can’t stand people who deny all of their heritage. fake.

  • Sabrina

    She’s a beauty!

  • Jay

    Yes, she’s biracial. But she’s still Black. Wyd?? Your President is also biracial and he is a black man. But more importantly, she just told you she is a black woman, you the fuck are you to question that. She is telling you about herself, her experience. Listen.

  • Jay

    That is the male gaze over-sexualising lesbians and bisexuals. That is not their fault, it’s not even true.

  • anon123

    She’s 17, jj.

    It’s her prerogative if she wants to identify as black. Who are you to tell her otherwise. Her father is a white man and she speaks very highly of him, actually.

    I think the point is you should identify yourself with what you are..not what you only perceive yourself to be. And what do you expect her to say about her father that he’s a white devil on social media? get a clue.

    “You should identify yourself with what you are…not what you only perceive yourself to be” Ya, tell that to all the suicidal transgendered kids who are forced to identify themselves as something other than the gender that they perceive themselves to be. But I digress. Amandla has experienced the struggles and the prejudices that black people face. So before you’ve walked in this girl’s shoes, don’t you dare say that she isn’t black. If she hated her father, she wouldn’t be talking about him at all, now would she? Get a life instead of worrying about this BLACK girl that you don’t give a damn about anyway.

  • LaCroix

    wtf? We are talking about race not gender issues. And when did I say she wasn’t black? Are you insane? … stfu never mind dont answer me just go to the meds cabinet & pop your pills.

  • Gina

    Seems the pill bottle is empty. Know anything about it? Lol.
