Actress And Activist Jillian Mercado Comes Out As Queer

Disability activist, actress and model Jillian Mercado has come out as queer on a recent Instagram post. 

“I am proud to say that I’ve done so many great things for the disability community (there is so much more to be done done tho). Over the course of this year I had the absolute honor to know people from all communities that make me me. That being a woman, having a disability, being Dominican, and finally I can add to that magical layer being queer,” she wrote. 

Mercado continued, “Although I’ve always felt at home with the queer community and when love is love I understood that I’ve always known. It’s so beautiful when you can truly feel what freedom feels like inside your own body and space your in.”
