This was hugely positive for her young fans, but likewise a significant turning point for the 17- year-old starlet.
Congratulations have actually poured in from many thousands– consisting of some familiar faces.
Abby Lee Miller is questionable at best, but when it concerned congratulating JoJo, she was all smiles.
Miller took to Facebook over the weekend to want JoJo the very best.

She referred to JoJo as “a shining example for the kids out there to live their BEST lives each and every day.”
You put your heart on the plate!
She gushed: “Love you kiddo!!!”
Miller concluded her warm post by asking JoJo to “Keep making me proud.”
JoJo began to drop hints that she was coming out as gay earlier recently, including an attractive lipsync to Lady Gaga’s “Born In this manner.”
It was just on Friday that she displayed her “Finest. Gay. Cousin. Ever,” t-shirt, which she described as a present from her cousin.
Following that heartfelt revelation and a very jubilant reception from the broader LGBTQ+ neighborhood, JoJo gushed to her fans about how much it indicated to her.
JoJo later dealt with fans, informing them that she had “never ever, ever, ever been this pleased prior to and it feels really incredible.”
Gay can sometimes work as an umbrella term for the more comprehensive LGBTQ+ community, however JoJo states that she has yet to pick a particular label.
” I have actually thought about this, however the factor I’m not going to say this response is since I do not truly know the response,” she admitted very truthfully.
” I believe people are awesome, I believe human beings are actually extraordinary people,” JoJo opined.

JoJo highlighted: “Right now what matters most is that you men understand that no matter who you like, that it’s OK,”

” I know everybody’s scenario is various and it may be harder for some individuals and easier for some people to come out or be themselves,” she acknowledged.
” But I think coming out has this stigma around it,” JoJo revealed, “that it’s this truly, really scary thing, however it’s not anymore.”
JoJo motivated her fans to feel comfy being themselves, even if they feel “unusual” truthfully revealing their identities.
” That’s something we need to never, ever be afraid of,” she stated.
” That’s something we ought to be proud of … I’m the happiest I have actually ever been, that’s what matters,” JoJo affirmed.
Additonally, JoJo shared that she realizes that she has been part of the LGBTQ+ neighborhood for all of her life.
Her family has actually known for a number of years, however, as he rmother brought it up with her a couple of years earlier in a very verifying way.
Like Abby Lee Miller, we are so pleased that JoJo is able to live life as herself. This is hugely favorable for her and for her young fans.
