‘Heartbreak High’ actor Ayesha Madon comes out as bisexual

Pride Month may have concluded, but singer and Heartbreak High star Ayesha Madon gave us another reason to celebrate by coming out as bisexual in an interview with Gay Times.

Although she is publicly revealing her bisexuality now, it is something she has been processing for quite some time. “When I was growing up, I felt myself being conditioned or gaslighted into thinking that I was straight. I look back now at all these signs that I’ve had crushes on girls my whole life but in my head, I was like ‘Oh that’s just nothing!’” she recalled.

“I only kind of properly admitted, out loud, that I was bisexual two or three years ago. It feels recent. It’s pretty interesting watching myself be attracted to [girls]. My first kiss was with a girl. I’ve actually never spoken about my sexuality before in anything, so this is pretty new,” she shared.

According to ‘Yahoo! Entertainment’, she went on to recount the story of her first kiss, and it’s genuinely adorable. “My first kiss was with a girl called Louise and I had the biggest crush on her. She was in my acting class when I was like 11. I remember she was chewing gum and in order to kiss her I had to like to pretend that I wanted to like try the gum!” she recalled. “We kissed and it was amazing. Since then, I had the inkling, but being surrounded by so many creatives and how much more normalized it’s becoming. It has given me the courage to feel comfortable in that as well. Sometimes I feel like I’m a fake queer person because I’m not massive on queer culture, sometimes, I feel that liking girls is not enough?”

The singer, whose latest single ‘Blame Me’ is out now, opened up about her favorite queer musicians, sharing her admiration for Chappell Roan, Reneé Rapp, and especially Rina Sawayama. “There’s something about her work that feels profound and that was always the type of music that I wanted to make. I wanted to make political music, I wanted to make ironic and funny music – I never saw anyone do it until Rina Sawayama. She kind of changed the game for me.”
