The Importance of Kristen Stewart’s Coming Out

Jul 31, 2016

Earlier this week, actress Kristen Stewart came out, telling Elle U.K. that she is in love with her girlfriend, Alicia Cargile. While some may wonder why this is noteworthy, it is still so important. Could Kristen’s coming out help a youth who is struggling with their identity? Definitely. Could it motivate other celebrities to be open and honest, prompting others in the public eye to live their truth? There’s a chance!

With each person who comes out and shares their story, another domino falls along the path to a world where this is not news. Until then, though, it is.

Congratulations, Kristen, on having the courage to live your truth.
