Since this Pride month is a little different than usual, I thought it was fitting if we look at some inspirational quotes from the person that most people would look at unless you are under the age of 12. I’m talking about Jojo Siwa, the girl with the massive bow. Originally on the show, “Dance Moms,” Jojo has become the Nickelodeon star that gives children Kids Bops style of music that doesn’t suck.
Jojo’s brand is all about self-acceptance and being yourself. Something that is Pride is all about. In an interview with Time, JoJo said that she models this from the late lead singer of the rock band Queen, Freddie Mercury.
“He was unapologetically himself … He looked different than everyone,” Jojo told Time. “I’ve always been like that, and I’ve never really known someone who pretty much does what I do.” She’s only 17 but she going to one a young LGBTQ+ source of inspiration because of the fact that she’s an ally and she truly loves her fans the way they are. Here are some inspirational quotes from Jojo that come from her lyrics:
For those haters that judge you
For when people don’t like you for you
To those who want you to be “normal”
When you just want to be your authentic self
For when you are your full authentic self
When you feel alone and like no one understands who you are
