Kaitlynn Carter Shares An Essay About Falling in Love with Miley Cyrus

“This past July, I went on vacation with a female friend; the next thing I knew, I was in love with her.” That’s how Kaitlynn Carter opens an essay she wrote for Elle magazine about falling in love with Miley Cyrus.

She goes on to say:

While it was short-lived, I’ll remain eternally grateful to my most recent relationship for opening my eyes to this unexplored part of myself, and for inspiring a new level of self-discovery and wonder at all the possibilities of life….

Although the relationship with my friend was often referenced in the media as merely a “summer fling” or a “same-sex affair,” it was so much more than that. This was a profound journey of self-discovery.

She shared the essay with fans on Instagram saying

morning! I wrote an op-ed for @ELLEusa on the topic of labels as they relate to sexuality, as well as how we should reflect on what we learn from all of our relationships so we can continue to evolve into, and better understand, the most authentic versions of ourselves. you can read it at the link in my bio and I’d love to hear your thoughts below. 💕
