AMANDLA STENBERG has been chosen as one of four influencers to star on five covers of Elle UK’s revamped September issue.
Elle’s ‘Rise of the Rebel’ edition focuses on activism, sexuality, transgender visibility and LGBTQI issues.
In one of five covers, the 17-year-old actress speaks about her activism and decision to come out as bisexual.
“It’s a really, really hard thing to be silenced and it’s deeply bruising to fight against your identity and to mold yourselves into shapes that you just shouldn’t be in,” she said in the candid clip, which was also posted on her Tumblr page in January.
“As someone who identifies as a black bisexual woman, I’ve been through it and it hurts and it’s awkward and it’s uncomfortable.”
Former One Direction star Zayn Malik and actress Kirsten Stewart also star.
