Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale Admits Why She Hid Her Bisexuality For A Long Time
Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale recently shared a post to reflect her ideas about pride month after many journalists approached her to do it on her official Instagram account. Hale also revealed her experiences as a bisexual woman and what she went through because of her sexuality.
LGBTQ+ pride month aims to celebrate who you are and love despite all prejudices, discrimination, and phobias, which is very challenging in a world full of people who find sexual orientations other than heterosexual wrong. Thus, the community and allies boldly step forward and cherish every aspect of being an LGBTQ+. During this time of the year, events, LBGTQ-themed places and products, and rainbow flags are everywhere to draw attention to visibility and equality.
As a person who publicly unveiled that she was a bisexual woman years ago through her Twitter account, various magazines and websites wanted to interview Hale to learn more about her orientation. However, she wanted to share it with her fans through a social media account. In her recent post, the Halestorm frontwoman said that she knew she was different at an early age, but Hale decided to hide her true self because she grew up in a semi-Christian family.
According to Hale, she could accept who she was thanks to being in a band far away from all social constructions, forcing people to live by their rules. The rocker clearly stated that she was unapologetically bisexual, emphasizing that nobody should be sorry about their sexual identity. Hale wished everyone to be proud of their uniqueness no matter what the others said by celebrating pride month with her genuine and kind words.
Hale’s IG post read:
“I’ve been approached by many outlets this month talking about pride, but I’m deciding to post this straight from this bi horses’ mouth. I understood there was something different about me from an early age. Growing up in a semi-Christian household, all of the things I was feeling were inherently wrong. So I hid my bisexuality for a long time.
It was through being in a band, getting out of organized religion, finding my tribe, and trudging through the dark, murky waters of life that I could be truly comfortable owning all the things that make me me.
I’m unapologetically bisexual. Navigating within my spectrum of this tremendous rainbow we are all a part of. What I hope to pass on to you, whether you are in a state of pride or still riding the high seas, is that by being your true self, embracing what makes you stand out to others, and owning your weird, these things ultimately become your superpowers.
Your true self is precious; no one can take it from you unless you let them. Wield it like a secret weapon. As far as I know, we only get one time around this ride. So live and breathe every single part of you; the good, the bad, the colorful, and the queer. Rock on motherf*ckers! I celebrate you!”
