Lilly came out as bisexual in February 2019
Merely a month prior to announcing her NBC late-night show A Little Late with Lilly Singh, the social media sensation made a huge revelation concerning her orientation. In fact, Lilly became the first human of color in history to come out as bisexual.
Previously, there were already prior suspicions amongst fans that she might be gay or lesbian. Lilly, meanwhile, took to Twitter to make the major announcement.
Upon coming out, Lilly said:
The very next meet-and-greet that I did after coming out was in India, and I would say 50 percent of people in that line came out to me. To me, that is a success.
Singh felt the culture she was raised in never allowed her to figure things out concerning her sexuality. It was only after when she moved to Los Angeles she got exposed to several types of people which made it possible for her to expand her horizon.
Although it was incredibly challenging for the Youtuber, she gave herself a deadline to reveal her orientation to her friends and family before her 30th birthday. To her massive credit, she managed to pull it off, and she was delighted for it.

Talking to Trevor Noah, Singh said:
I’m a big believer that storytelling is important, and that different stories belong on different platforms. We should stop making the division between digital and traditional because it's all just storytelling.
Lilly added, she is going to be quite rebellious and not succumb to the age-old late-night rules of wearing heels on the show. The TV host seeks to create an environment where people can come wearing sneakers. She reiterated, "I'll do the suits sometimes, but sometimes I might do something funky, like an Indian designer. I want to show off all the things that I like."
