jenny owen youngs comes out lesbian

Woo Hoo!

Another brave famous face reppin' the gay community!!!

One of our fave folksters, Jenny Owen Youngs, has come out of the closet and in a BIG way.

The songstress wrote, in an open letter on EveryoneIsGay.com, that she is in fact a lesbian. Not only that, but Jenny dives into her past struggles with sexuality, her coming out story, AND her plans to marry the advocacy site's co-crreator Kristin Russo.

Jenny wrote:

"I’m writing to tell you, among other things, that I am super gay…I think it is damaging and isolating for young people to look out into the world and not see a representation of their experience. To encounter others who are like you is to know that you are not alone. Even if you never meet them in real life, these representatives help to contextualize you – they are proof that you are part of something. You are not an anomaly. You are not a mistake.I am thankful that in recent years, it has become a bit more common for people from all walks of life to step forward and identify themselves as human beings who also happen to be gay. I am proud to offer my voice to that expanding chorus."

And we're SO proud to have you singing for equality with us!!

If only we could get to a point where we didn't have to remind people that who they are is not a mistake.

Thankfully, our community is lucky to have such a strong, eloquent advocate to help us makes leaps in accepting EVERYONE, no matter what their sexuality is!

Read the FULL epic letter …AFTER THE JUMP!!
