Pop singer Daya came out as bisexual in honor of National Coming Out Day.

The 19-year-old singer, known for her single “Don’t Let Me Down” with the Chainsmokers and her solo single “Sit Still, Look Pretty,” made the announcement on Instagram.

“one day late but happy 1st national coming out day to me! what a crazy thing! all i gotta say is follow your gut and don’t feel like you owe any sort of explanation to anyone. your sexuality is yours only so build with it at a pace that works for you,” Daya begins.

She also shared that she is currently in a same-sex relationship.

“i’m proud to be a bisexual member of the LGBTQ community with a girl i love who makes me feel more like me every day. the support has been beyond and though it wasn’t always easy i also recognize how privileged i am to have had so much of it, so i especially wanna be there for those of u who aren’t surrounded by the most accepting family/friends/communities. stay authentic, talk thru it with people u trust, know you’re loved and that i’m thinking of u,” she continued.
