June 17 (UPI) -- Actress Amandla Stenberg came out as a lesbian on Instagram this weekend.

"OUT & PROUD," she wrote in a post Saturday. "So happy to say the words Yep, I'm Gay in official print. Interviewed for @wonderland by someone I stan infinitely -- the fiercest garbagio pop queen @kingprincess69. Thank you to KP for providing me with such a safe space to come out. We talk about gay sobbing, first encounters with lesbian masturbation, queer icons, Toni Morrison, disillusionment as a critical step, the art I've been working on, and the films that I have coming out this year. Full interview on newsstands now and available online Monday."
