Singh shared a selfie and labeled herself as "female," "coloured" and "bisexual" in the caption. She told fans she considers her sexuality one of her "superpowers."

"Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I'm fully embracing them as my superpowers," the star wrote. "No matter how many 'boxes' you check, I encourage you to do the same."

Singh thanked fans in a followup tweet after her followers voiced their love and support online.

"Thank you so much for the love and positivity. Words can't describe how much it means. I appreciate you all. Group hug," she wrote, adding several heart emojis.

Singh returned to YouTube in December after announcing the month previous she would be taking a hiatus from the site to focus on her mental health.

"I am mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually exhausted," the star told fans in November.

"I always preach that you should be happy, you should take care of yourself," she said. "I'm not my optimal happiness right now. I could be mentally healthier."
