On how she feels about coming out:
"Terrified, absolutely terrified."
On why it's important to come out publicly:
"Part of why I'm coming out is because there's so much hate and fear in and around the LGBT community right now and it's important for us not to halt progress out of fear. Yes, it's a scary time, but we need to stand up and say, even if you are afraid, I'm not afraid, or even if I am afraid, I'm strong. I am who I am and you can't take that away from me."
She later thanked fans on Twitter, saying "Thank you for all of the love and support since lats night - it truly means a lot!"
