JoJo Siwa has revealed her connection to Disney World, citing it as central to her coming out journey. 

Siwa came out as gay in 2021, and has now revealed that it was at the US theme park that she first “fell in love” with a woman.

“I have a lot of really fun memories here… I have a lot of really hard memories here, but I have grown a lot at Disney,” Siwa told People.

“I fell in love for the first time at Disney World. I realised I was gay at Disney World.

“I went through stages of heartbreak at Disney World. There’s been a lot in my personal life that Disney World has really attributed to.”

The 19-year-old YouTuber and TikTok star revealed that she spent two weeks at the theme park with a close, female friend, when she realised that she “liked” her.

“I was here for 14 days with a girl that was my really good friend and I realized that, ‘Oh, I like her.’ And having all those feelings while just being in the most magical place in the world and the happiest place on Earth was so cool,” she said.

“We’re not together anymore, but we did have some really fun, happy memories here.”

JoJo Siwa recalled “the tension of riding every ride, sitting next to each other, walking around the park like my brother and his girlfriend because we thought it was funny. But really, we both just wanted to hold hands. Those memories just make my heart so happy.”
