Miley came out to her mother as pansexual when she was 14 and has revealed relationships that "weren't straight, heterosexual ones." The star also identifies as gender fluid.
In Sam Smith's 2014 Fader cover story he says, "I’m very comfortable and happy with everything. I just wanted to talk about him and have it out there. [My album] is about a guy and that’s what I wanted people to know—I want to be clear that that’s what it’s about... why is [my sexuality] a talking point? I’m singing, I’m making music, I’m performing my music—that’s what should be the talking point."

The Years and Years frontman spoke about his positions as an LGBT trailblazer, saying "I get asked, 'How do you feel being a spokesperson for gay issues?', and what I've come to think is I can't speak for all gay people, because there are so many different issues, and experiences, and different shapes and sizes. But I can speak for myself, and that is what I'm doing...I want to be able to speak about something I care about."

Big Freedia may be a world-famous Bounce artist and performer (and star of Fuse's highest-rated series ever), but at the end of the day he's still the same Queen Diva that started out on small stages in his hometown of New Orleans. Openly gay and defying gender roles and stereotypes daily, on AND off stage, Freedia is living proof that hard work and remaining true to yourself always pay off in the end.
