EXCLUSIVE: Joy Huerta Celebrates Pride Month and Shares her Moving Journey
If you are a Jesse & Joy fan, you probably know that it wasn’t until recently that Huerta decided to be open about her sexuality.
To kick off the first week of Pride month the Mexican singer opened up to us about her experience and what it was like to share such an important part of her life with millions of fans.
In the video above, the "Tanto" singer revealed that her wife Diana Atri, was a fundamental piece in her life because thanks to her she realized that her sexuality "is not just a thought anymore."
Huerta confessed that she faced several obstacles before making her sexual orientation public, one of them was "true acceptance".
"I've heard it so often. I've heard it one too many times. Did your family accept you? Did your friends accept you? No. the only person that should accept you and needs to accept you is really you," she said.
The Mexican pop star also confessed that her firstborn daughter Noah, is the reason why she decided to share this part of her life.
"Wanting to share this part of my life came from our daughter Noah. I didn't think that sharing this part of me would be relevant at all because I don't owe anyone an explanation of my pansexuality...," Huerta said.
