Following their big reveal, Mama June took to Facebook to detail how proud she is of her daughter.
“VERY PROUD OF PUMPKIN @LAURYN_SHANNON LAST NIGHT IN HER INTERVIEW WITH INSIDE EDITION BOUT COMING OUT TO THE WORLD BEING BI SEXUAL,” June wrote.
She had more to say, writing, “AT HER AGE AND FEELING COMFORTABLE ABOUT TALKING ABOUT IT IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ME SHE HAD BEEN WANTING TO SPEAK PUBLICLY ON A NATIONAL LEVEL FOR A WHILE AND WOULD LOVE TO HELP OTHER TEENS OUT THAT DONT HAVE THE SUPPORT SHE HAS THAT R DEALING WITH THEIR SEXUALITY WITH NO SUPPORT.”
June wrapped with saying, “SO IF U R A TEEN GIRL OR BOY AND NEED SOMEONE TO TALK U CAN CONTACT HER ON IG @LAURYN_SHANNON OR ON FB @LAURYN MYCHELLE SHANNON OR ON TWITTER BLOWIN_YUR_MIND15 AND SHE WILL REPLY TO U CAUSE SHE FEELS IF SHE CAN HELP ONE TEEN SHE ACCOMPLISHED WHAT SHE WANTS TO DO WITH SO MANY COMMUTING SUICIDE OVER THEIR SEXUALITY #BISEXUAL#NOTASHAMED#SUPPORTERS#LGBT#NOH8#GLAAD.”
