Actor in shock: Bullied to jump out

Actor Jameela Jamil, who is best known for his role in the tv series 'The good place', on the social media Twitter told, that she is 'queer'.

she felt compelled to, after she has been bullied and his friend for on the net of different people from the LGBTQ community, because HBO has announced her as a judge in the forthcoming programme 'Legendary'.

the Programme focuses on the culture of the LGBTQ environment, how you dress and dances, poses, and moves to different music.

Jameela has since 2015 formed pairs with James Blake

the Whole show is called 'voguing' and has been known in the gay environments since the 1920's.

While the participants are dancing, assessing a panel of judges, who are the best.

Precisely the role was Jameela Jamil offered - but because she had not been out as queer, there were several in the environment, which was outraged by the choice.

'This is the reason why I never come officially out as queerl', she wrote in a lengthy posting on his Twitter profile.

'I have added a rainbow by my name on Twitter, when I felt ready for it for a couple of years ago. But this is not something that is easy to accept in the south asian environment. I always answer honestly, if someone asked me directly, but I've kept it on the back burner, because I was afraid of being accused of lying, and this is something that has confused me since I was a child', she writes.

But even though Jameela Jamil has now made it clear that she is 'real' enough to be selected as a judge for the program, she knows well that being queer does not necessarily mean that you know much about the culture by the balls, as the competitions are called.

'I know well that just because I am queer, I am not one who knows everything about the balls. But I have a privilege and a power as well as a large følgerskare, that I can take with this show. Sometimes it requires a lot of power to get a show to succeed so we can get that important back in the light', she writes, and ends on a sad note:

'This is not at all how I would get out
