YouTube star Lilly Singh, better known as Superwoman has come out as bisexual in a post aiming to break down barriers. Writing on Twitter, she posted: “Female. Coloured. Bisexual,” all with green ticked boxes next to them.
And playing on her name, she added: “Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers. No matter how many ‘boxes’ you check, I encourage you to do the same x.”
