After coming out earlier this year, YouTube star JoJo Siwa is reflecting on her decision in a new interview with People Magazine.

She explained she's "figuring out" how she identifies.

"I still don't know what I am," she said. "I want to figure it out. I have this joke. Her [JoJo's girlfriend] name is Kylie. So, I say that I'm Ky-sexual.


"I don't know... bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, straight," she added. "I always say gay because it kind of covers it — or queer, because I think the key word is cool."

Siwa continued: "I like queer. Technically I would say that I am pansexual, because that's how I have always been my whole life is just like, my human is my human."

She also told People that the negative comments did impact her, and she had trouble sleeping for three days. Nevertheless, she's since found peace.

"I don't want people to watch my videos or buy my merchandise if they aren't going to support not only me but the LGBTQ community," she explained.


Siwa went on to say how happy she currently is.

"For the first time, personally, I am like, whoa, happiness," she said. "I am so proud to be me."

In February, Siwa introduced fans to her girlfriend.
