We learned about singer Lauren’s Jauregui’s bisexuality when she wrote an open letter to Donald Trump supporters published in Billboard. And it’s absolutely worth a read.

In her super moving letter to Trump supporters, Lauren came out as bisexual. But that’s not all she had to say. She began her open letter, saying,
