“I want to announce that I’m bisexual, and I’m now proud to be a part of the LGBTQ+ community,” she said.

“I feel like it didn’t really even occur to me until I moved out here [to Los Angeles] that being bisexual was even a possibility in my brain,” she went on to explain, adding that she’s now in a relationship with 19-year-old soccer player Kaila Novak, which was sparked through a DM exchange on Instagram.

“I met my girlfriend on TikTok and became thoroughly obsessed with her,” she explains.

“She actually curved me for a week before first answering!” she added, going on to explain that they’ve seen each other regularly since January.

She also spoke about JoJo Siwa recently coming out.

“I saw that and thought ‘Wow, that’s really amazing for young children now because she’s such a big role model.’ And she’s really become almost a role model for me to look up to as well.”

“I want to let young girls know that it’s okay to not even know your sexuality until you’re older. I think it should be more normalized to come out [when you’re ready for it],” she went on to say.

Olivia also discussed stereotypes regarding appearances in her interview.

“I’m very feminine, I wear a lot of makeup, and I think people always have this stereotype towards [queer women] that’s unfair…I follow a lot of girls who are in the community that dress super feminine, and they always post content about people thinking they’re straight and it’s like, well, no, I’m actually gay or bisexual or however they identify, and that honestly helped me a lot.”

“[I hope people become] very open minded about every situation. You never know what really anyone’s going through in their own brain, even if they’re not talking about it on social media or what not,” she went on to say.

A High School Musical star also just came out as bi during this week, which is also the kick-off of Pride Month.
