"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."
Amandla Stenberg, best known for her role as Rue in The Hunger Games, has come out as bisexual.
The actress, 17, opened up about her sexuality while appearing on Teen Vogue’s Snapchat account on Thursday, following the reveal of her first cover for the magazine. She later tweeted out a link to the clip on Friday.
Stenberg started the video by speaking of the importance of representation, saying, “It’s deeply bruising to fight against your identity and mold yourself into shapes you just shouldn’t be in.”
