“2 years ago today ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 now looking back on everything…. I’m SO proud of 17 year old JoJo.🏼,” she wrote in the caption for the photo — the same photo she shared when she first came out, in which she wears a t-shirt with the words “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.”

She added, “Right now you guys know that no matter who you love, it is okay. I think coming out has this stigma around it that it is a very, very scary thing but it’s not anymore. There are so many loving and accepting people out there.”
