“This is such a personal video,” Gigi began. “It is definitely a video I never expected to make! I just got goosebumps.”
Gigi told fans that she has slowly been letting fans into her life through vlogging, but admits she has been holding back information from fans. “But I have not really gone into much detail or much explaining at all. I was just not ready to talk about it all. My sexuality, you know.”
She explained that 2016 has been one of the most eventful and fun years of her entire life. “I have been doing lots of examination and reflection. Like, the changes I have gone through [mentally] and who I have become.”
Speaking further, she told fans that she fell in love with a woman this time around. “I never thought I would make this video! I always thought I’d end up with another man.”
She looked back at some of her past coming-out videos. “In high school, I came out as a gay man. Then, I came out as a transgender woman. I thought that was it, and I was done! I seriously did. It’s killing me inside!”
She finally confirmed her sexuality for fans. “From now on, I am a lesbian!”
