Lauren Jauregui, a singer from the pop group Fifth Harmony, came out as bisexual this weekend in an emotional post-election letter she penned to Donald Trump voters.
“I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it,” she wrote in the letter, which was featured on Billboard’s website.
Jauregui’s letter lambasts Trump voters for what she refers to as “pure ignorance and refusal to understand the way the government and the world works, [which] allowed a power-hungry business tycoon to take over the United States of America.”
The singer discusses feminism, racism, religion, homophobia, sexism, misogyny, xenophobia and a wealth of other issues she feels influenced the dismaying election results and the people responsible for them.
“None of us belong here but all of us deserve the right to feel safe and live our lives in peace. To not have to worry about potentially dying, or being electro-shocked, or beaten, or raped, or emotionally abused because our existence and/or choices for ourselves upset someone else,” she wrote. “This is the world Trump is fostering. This is the division that has risen since the beginning of the campaign. We are not America indivisible any longer, we are united on two separate sides; Love and Hatred. We are not ‘whining’ about our presidential choice losing, we are screaming battle cries against those whose political and personal agendas threaten our lives and sanity. We are making sure you hear us, no matter how much it bothers you, we EXIST.”
