Lily Cole announces queer sexuality
Supermodel Lily Cole, aged 33, spoke out about her sexuality in her recently published book named ‘Who Cares Wins: How to Protect the Planet You Love’.
Lily began explaining that just as we do not choose the cultural norms and laws we inherit, and proceeded to state:
“Had my mixed-race daughter been born in a different country, she would have been a crime.”
Followed by her coming-out queer announcement which read:
“If I were living in another country today, my queerness would be a crime.”
Having been in a marital relationship since 2012, Lily went on to explain that she felt the need to “acknowledge” that she is not straight.
Speaking upon the same topic, Cole told The Sunday Times Style magazine:
“I like that world because of its openness, because I think all those boundaries are quite rigid.
After clarifying that she has many friends who identify as sexualities other than hetersexual, she confessed that some also identify as queer.
The artist followed up with the statement:
“I’ve always been quite private about my private life, consciously, and I want to continue to be, so I don’t feel the need to be explicit. At the same time I feel the need to acknowledge that I am not straight.”
