Cara Delevingne has long been an advocate for LGBTQ+ rights.
In 2019, she received the Trevor Project Hero Award for her involvement in the organization's mission to end suicide among LGBTQ+ youth.
She launched a Pride Month capsule collection with Puma in 2021.
She is donating 20 percent of its profits to the Cara Delevingne Foundation, supporting worldwide LGBTQ+ charities.
However, in a new interview with Harper's Bazaar UK, Cara opened up.
"Very Stressful" upbringing, sharing the challenge of growing up queer and not having an LGBTQ+ role model to look up to.
"I do think I would have hated myself less. I would not have been so ashamed if I had had someone," she said.
The model-slash-actress initially identified as bisexual but came out as pansexual.
Meaning she is sexually, emotionally, and physically attracted to all genders in 2020.
She has previously shared the struggle in coming to terms with her sexual identity, especially as a young child.
Last year, Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop podcast revealed that she was "homophobic" and had "suicidal moments" before coming out.
Now, Cara is more open about discussing her sexuality.
She is developing a documentary with the BBC and Hulu to explore the world's biggest questions surrounding sexuality, identity, and gender.
The working title is Planet Sex and will air as a six-part series.
"The one thing I am happy about growing up queer and fighting it"
"Hiding it is it gives me fire and drive to try to make people's lives easier in some way by talking about it." she shared.
