The J Team star previously expressed her excitement at being able to dance with a woman on Dancing With the Stars this season. “I’m excited that I get to do it,” Siwa said during a virtual panel for the show during Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in August. “I think it’s cool. I think it breaks a wall that’s never been broken down before. And it’s normal for a girl to dance with a guy, and I think that that’s really cool, but I think that it’s really special that not only now, do I get to share with the world you get to love who you want to love, but also, you get to dance with who you want to dance with.”
Siwa, 18, came out publicly earlier in the year in a tweet. A few months later, the former Dance Moms star opened up to People about how she identifies. “I still don’t know what I am. It’s, like, I want to figure it out … I don’t know — bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, straight. I always just say ‘gay’ because it just kind of covers it, or ‘queer’ because I think the keyword is cool,” she said. “Technically, I would say that I am pansexual because that’s how I have always been my whole life is just like, my human is my human.”
