@LoveSimonMovie comes out this weekend! It is a groundbreaking, hopeful, and life-affirming movie that should be seen and supported by everyone. Never before has there been an LGBTQ romantic comedy pushed by a major studio in such a mainstream way; by supporting it, we have the power to show the entertainment industry--and society--that LGBTQ stories matter and deserve to be told. I dreamed of seeing a movie like this growing up and I know that this entertaining, fantastically done film is going to make a big difference in many people's lives. EVERYONE deserves a great love story! ❤️ #LoveSimon #LoveSimonMovie #LoveIsLouder #LoveIsLove

Thank you all so much for the love and support you've shown us since we announced our engagement! I can’t express my gratitude enough because you have made this moment even more special. We are looking forward to the next chapter but for now we are going to enjoy and celebrate this time! 🏳️‍🌈👬❤️

@RayvonOwen, I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you, and I am beyond thrilled to officially call you my fiancé! You’ve made me a better man and I’ll forever be grateful to you for loving me unconditionally. I know with all of my heart that Tom would be so happy for us, and I thank you for honoring and respecting the fact that he will always be a part of my life.
I have to give a huge thank you to @ddlovato for being a supportive friend and for helping make last night possible. It was one of the greatest moments of my life! I also want to thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for young people, and particularly the LGBT community. Your heart, your voice, and your activism make everyone feel accepted, less alone, more empowered and more hopeful. ❤️
Thank you to @matthew_scott_montgomery, @sirahsays, @adreeneyc, @kelseykershner and Demi’s team for helping pull last night off and thank you to everyone out there who has supported me, as well as my relationship with Rayvon. Your support through the years has not gone unnoticed and I would not be where I am without all of you. ❤️🏳️‍🌈#LoveIsLouder #LoveWins #TellMeYouLoveMeTour

Who else is obsessed with the @QueerEye (for the Straight Guy) reboot, now streaming on Netflix??? I just binged the entire season! There were so many powerful messages within each episode, and I’m not even gonna pretend like I didn’t shed a few tears (okay, maybe A LOT of tears 😝). Thank you to everyone who made this important, heartwarming, and hopeful series--especially the brilliant hosts, @bobbyberk, @antoni, @tanfrance, @karamobrown, and @jvn! 🏳️‍🌈 #QueerEye

Huge congrats to Adam! He inspires millions of people by proudly being himself and fearlessly speaking out about what he believes in. His voice--and this win--will surely inspire many people, particularly LGBT youth! 🌈 #AdamRippon

I am starting to get back into the groove of being more active on social media again! I hope that’s all right with all of you. 😉 Over the past several months, I have directed more of my energy into offline activism, but ... I miss you all! I continue to have the privilege of speaking at universities and organizations across the country, but I do want to get back in the habit of using social media more consistently to shine a light on issues that I--and I know so many of you--deeply care about. ❤️

I filmed a video yesterday for an amazing and important project that my beautiful, inspiring friend, @nowthisisliving, is launching soon! 🌈 📸 @ryhutchfilm

I could not be happier or more proud of my beautiful and talented friend, @ColeenMcMahon, for sharing her truth with the world today as she releases a music video for her new song, "My Heart's Awake." ❤️
Many of you know Coleen from her song “Beautiful Boy,” which has touched countless lives over the years. Now, at a time in which there is so much negativity in the world, she continues to spread joy and hope through this song's uplifting and much-needed message. 😊
Please show some love to Coleen, who worked so hard on “My Heart's Awake." You can watch the full video, and even download the song for FREE 😀, by visiting:

Here’s to climbing new mountains and taking on new challenges. 😄 I’m so excited for what this year will bring! 💙 📷 @hkcameraface

Y’all!! How awesome is this?! Rayvon is @ElvisDuran’s artist of the month and will be performing his new single “Gold” on the Today Show on Tuesday. Be sure to tune in! I love you so much, @RayvonOwen. I am so happy for and proud of you!! 😃❤️

What a year it has been! I’ve done lots of reflecting on the past, while also allowing myself to feel more free in the present than I have in a very long time (with much credit to my incredible partner, Rayvon). I am grateful for the lows and highs this year (including the great news from Australia!). I look forward to a new year, with new possibilities to learn, to grow, and to create more memories.
Wishing you and your family a happiest new year ahead! ❤️

Obligatory new phone selfie. 😜📸 Safe travels to those of you who are traveling this weekend for the holidays! ✈️❄️⛄️💙
