Alex G started her YouTube channel in 2010

A YouTube musician came out as bisexual to her viewers.

Alex G posted a video on 11 October titled My Story, Bisexuality.

She states at the start of the video: ‘I am a bisexual cisgender woman.’

Alex also explained why she came out.

She said: ‘I wanna be a voice for you out there who might be struggling with shame about who you are.’

The singer also wants to help people who are dealing with ‘confusion about sexuality and just feeling like you don’t know if you belong here on this planet.’

Alex had never acknowledged her sexuality before because of growing up with a religious background.

Aged 13, she just believed she was ‘hyper sexual.’

While accepting her sexuality she had to ‘get rid of a lot of shame, a lot of religious baggage.’

Alex is now aged 25.

She continued: ‘It wasn’t until the last two years, I realized this was something I needed to address about me.’

Earlier this year, she watched a video of a Evan Rachel Wood’s speech.

Finally, Alex saw someone she felt she related to and realized the label that fit her best was bisexual.

Watch the moving coming out video below.
