Dove Cameron Shares Emotional Post About ‘Identity’: ‘I Don’t Have Answers’

Pop singer and actor Dove Cameron came out as queer in 2020, but said that they always kinda knew they weren’t straight. This week, Cameron took to Instagram to state that they’ve been considering their identity at large, something they acknowledged some people never need to do, while others find themselves exploring unknown parts of themselves:

“I’ve been struggling lately with the concept of self, my inner relationship to who I know myself to be and my outer perceivable self who I feel I have never known, but other people seem to,” Cameron wrote. “I’ve been covering mirrors lately. I’ve been feeling wrong in clothing that used to make me feel beautiful lately. I’ve been crying a lot lately, sometimes terrorized by my identity and image, sometimes in absolute flow with something new and peripheral and joyous to me.”

This is the kind of discourse both young people and especially an older generation who never got to explore these types of ideas, need from their pop stars! Good for Dove for sharing this perspective. Check out their full post after the jump!

!! OMG, Jake Daniels, 17, comes out, becomes the only openly-gay male professional footballer in Britain !!

Welcome to the club, Jake Daniels! The Blackpool footballer, 17, has come out and became the only openly gay male professional footballer in Britain

“I just knew that was just such a long time of just lying and not being able to have what I want,” he said.

“Since I’ve come out to my family, my club and my teammates, that period of overthinking everything and the stress it created has gone. It was impacting my mental health.

“Now I am just confident and happy to be myself finally.”

Jake says he has received “amazing support” from his teammates after telling them about his sexuality. Congrats on a big step for yourself, and for other athletes out there. Hopefully this will encourage more to do so!

!! OMG, WATCH: “Friday I’m In Love” doc explores the history of Houston’s counterculture landmark, Numbers nightclub !!

Bars and nightclubs have long been an essential gathering place for queer communities and Numbers nightclub was one such place for LGBTQ patrons in Houston, Texas.

Friday I’m in Love details the nightclub’s long and storied history as a gay disco and alternative music venue, revealed through events like the AIDS crisis, police brutality against the LGBTQ communities and the rise in hate crimes during the ‘90s. Mixing personal stories with those of the legendary musicians who performed there (Grace Jones, The Cure, Björk, Nine Inch Nails among them) this powerful documentary celebrates those who ignited and sustained its musical history and legacy of acceptance.

Friday I’m in Love proves the importance of LGBTQ bars and nightclubs and serves as a call to action in response to the dwindling number of spaces we can call our own.

The film will be playing as part of Inside Out LGBTQ+ Film Festival from May 26th to June 5th in Toronto. Check out the trailer after the jump and grab your tickets (A virtual screening is also available if you aren’t in Toronto) HERE!
