Lauren Jauregui is singing a different tune than her Fifth Harmony sisters in a heated and revealing letter penned to Donald Trump on Friday. Her words are fueled by a surprising admission: Lauren is bisexual.
“I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it. I am proud to be part of a community that only projects love and education and the support of one another,” Lauren wrote in a letter released by Billboard. “I am proud to be the granddaughter and daughter of immigrants who were brave enough to leave their homes and come to a whole new world with a different language and culture and immerse themselves fearlessly to start a better life for themselves and their families.”
Lauren joins dozens of other proud, bisexual, female celebrities: Megan Fox, Lady Gaga, Kesha, and Fergie to name a few. Her explosive message to Trump and simultaneous outing has received incredible responses from fans. Fifth Harmony fans, called Harmonizers, sent #WeAreProudOfYouLauren trending on Twitter in a matter of hours.
LAUREN IS BISEXUAL.
I LOVE HER AS MUCH AS I DID BEFORE BUT I LOVE HER SO SO MUCH AND IM SO PROUD.

The letter is as eloquent as it is accurate. Read for yourself:
This politically correct world we’ve created, which is really just a world with social etiquette, where we have weeded out the language of racism and explained why, where we have established feminism as a growing notion of making women realize their validity and right to be treated as the full complex beings they are and men the same (which clearly needs A LOT of work considering how women across America, especially white women, voted for this man who insulted your very existence every time he opened his mouth or disrespected Hillary during his campaign), where we have had to create numerous labels to help queer people who didn’t fit the cis heterosexual mold feel valid and identified in a world where narrow-minded consciousness has made them feel invalid and invisible for so long. That’s the “politically correct” behavior you wanna get rid of? You wanna restore America to a world where the human beings around you feel scared to be themselves and live and love freely?
