Amandla Stenberg landed her first-ever Teen Vogue cover, and was also asked to take over the magazine’s Snapchat. The actress went about her daily activities while controlling the social media account until she was ready to hand it back over. During her takeover, Amandla revealed that she identifies as bisexual.
“It’s a really really hard thing to be silenced and it’s deeply bruising to fight against your identify and to mold yourself into shapes that you just shouldn’t be in,” the actress says. She continues, “As someone who identifies as a black, bisexual woman I’ve been through it, and it hurts, and it’s very awkward and it’s uncomfortable.”
She also admits that her friends have really helped her to love and accept herself. “I realized because of Solange and Ava and DuVernay and Willow and all the black girls watching this right now, that there’s absolutely nothing to change.”
Take a look at Amandla’s Snapchat below.
