UPDATE: JoJo Siwa has officially come out as part of the LGBTQIA+ community

Ever since JoJo Siwa jammed out to Lady Gaga's "Born This Way"—a song all about supporting members of the LGBTQIA+ community—on her TikTok Jan. 20, fans everywhere have been on the edge of their seats, waiting excitedly to see if the lipsync vid was, in fact, JoJo's coming out celebration.

"No matter gay, straight or bi..." JoJo lip-synced along to the lyrics, dressed in a sweatshirt adorned with rainbow hearts and one of her signature bows.  "I'm on the right track, baby, I was born to survive." 

Well, we don't need to wonder any longer! Our fave bow-wearing lady answered *everybody's* theories with a tweet on Jan. 22.

"My cousin got me a new shirt," she tweeted, paired with a pic of her smiling in a "Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever." T-shirt.
