25 Of The Most Inspiring Celebrity Coming Out Stories
Shannon Purser came out as bi to her fans very early on in her process of self-discovery. In a series of tweets, the Stranger Things actress revealed that she had very recently come out to her family and friends and that she doesn’t enjoy talking about her sexuality because it’s something that she’s still processing and trying to understand.
She has since deleted the tweets, which were actually a response to angry Riverdale fans who accused the writers of Riverdale and her character, Ethel Muggs, of queer-baiting. Jezebel reported on the argument and included earlier tweets where Shannon talks about the process of getting comfortable with sexuality and the importance of defining your sexuality on your own terms.
