IISuperwomanII has some new superpowers.
YouTuber and Canadian actress Lilly Singh, 30, officially came out as bisexual via a Twitter post on Sunday, February 24th.
The tweet checked off three boxes: "Female," "Colored" and "Bisexual," which Singh self-identifies as her superpowers.
✅ Female ✅ Coloured ✅ Bisexual Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But no… https://t.co/L68ls7RoUL— Lilly Singh (@Lilly Singh)1551056775.0

Prior to this, Singh posted a video in November 2018 saying she was taking a break from social media altogether.
"I'mma be real with y'all, I am mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually exhausted...I've enjoyed it, I love it, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it's a lot … I'm also about happiness. And I always preach that. You should be happy, you should take care of yourself."
I'll see you soon... www.youtube.com
"I could be happier. I'm not my optimal happiness right now. I could be mentally healthier, I don't feel like I'm completely mentally healthy, I think there's a lot going on up here that I need to address that I'm not able to, constantly pumping out content."
While she resumed creating and posting videos the following month, this post marked a big step forward for her.
And aside from fellow YouTubers, the general LGBTQ community is welcoming her with open arms.
