JoJo Siwa has told fans of the moment she knew “men were not her thing”.

Siwa publicly came out last year in a viral TikTok to Lady Gaga’s Born This Way.

In an interview with People, JoJo later said: “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”. JoJo then explained that she personally uses the terms gay, pansexual and queer.

Now, JoJo has opened up about her gay awakening and how it involved her first boyfriend.

In a new Instagram reel, JoJo explains that Demi Lovato and Jenna Dewan played a significant role in her coming out journey.

“When I was 12, Demi Lovato came out with the song ‘Cool for the Summer’,” she said.

“I really, really liked it and I listened to it all the time. I didn’t know what it meant back then but now that I’m much older and I understand it. Then a few years later, Jenna Dewan went on Lip Sync Battle. She did a really great Magic Mike number. I watched it every day.”

JoJo then reveals a pivotal moment for her.

“Little me, she didn’t know she was gay until, a couple years later, a man was my first date and he wanted to have sex with me and I did not want to, never wanted to, grossed out by the thought of it, immediately knew men are not my thing, women are my gig, gotta go.”
