“I don’t like the word itself,” said Siwa. “It’s just, like ‘lesbian,’ it’s like a lot … at the end of the day, that’s what I am.”

“I never said lesbian is a dirty word and I would never say it’s a dirty word because it isn’t,” Siwa said. “It’s not a bad word… if someone talks to me about my sexuality, I just say I’m gay. I don’t hate the word lesbian … it’s not the word that rolls off my tongue, if that makes sense.’

She said her use of the word has to do with her language preferences, because “it’s easier for” [her] to say that [she’s] homo.

“I don’t say the word lesbian because it’s a lot for me to say, but it means nothing to me but a mouthful.”

Siwa came out on LGBTQ last year, telling People of the terminology she prefers to use: ‘I don’t know, bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, straight. I always just say gay because it covers it up or queer because I think the keyword is cool.
