We have awesome news for those who look up to celebrities for representation in the LGBTQ+ community. Disney “Moana” actress Auli’i Cravalho just came out as bisexual publicly.
Her sexuality was brought to attention in a video posted to Tik Tok. Cravalho was recording the video to Eminem’s “Those Kinds Nights,” which includes lyrics that describe a conversation between the protagonist and a woman. The woman comes out as bi and, when the speaker says they’re “checking out the chick,” the woman responds, “So am I.” Cravalho lipsynced only the woman’s words.
Now, this may just seem like it may just be a cute TikToc and perhaps we are reaching. However, Auli’i Cravalho was asked directly in a tweet if she liked girls, “do u like girls” To which she responded: “if i may escort you to my tiktok….” and directed them to this TikToc as an answer that points to a definite yes.
Needless to say, her fans are excited and have easily embraced her. We are excited to see another positive role model for young LGBTQ+ who may be struggling with coming out on their own.
