Cara Delevingne knows who she is, and is proud of it. Despite inappropriate insinuations, the 22-year-old supermodel and Paper Towns star is putting an end to rumors about her sexual orientation in an interview with The New York Times.
In June, she discussed her relationship with singer Annie Clark — known by her stage name St. Vincent — to Vogue, who appeared to position her bisexuality as a "phase." Now, Delevingne is setting the record straight. "My sexuality is not a phase," she said. "I am who I am." A great deal of progress has been achieved when it comes to LGBTQ rights in America. However, even with every step forward there is still more work to do. Unfortunately, a common misconception about bisexuality is that it's a phase. On the contrary, Delevingne's assertion about her sexual orientation should be respected. Delevingne seems to be at an exciting point in her life. In addition to a successful modeling career, starring in a highly anticipated film, and a potential high-profile music venture, a healthy and happy relationship is yet another thing to take pride in. Delevingne shouldn't have to explain herself, or who she loves.
