Actress Bex Taylor-Klaus, best known for playing Audrey Jensen on MTV's Scream, came out gay on Friday.

Roughly three months ago, Taylor-Klaus, 22, recorded a video in which she swore never to reveal her sexuality.

“hello my name is bex and yes the rumors are true I am v gay,” Taylor-Klaus tweeted on Wednesday.

The tweet pointed to a YouNow live stream in which she said that she had changed her mind about being open due in part to the election of Donald Trump.

“Part of why I'm coming out is because there's so much hate and fear in and around the LGBT community right now and it's important for us not to halt progress out of fear,” Klaus-Taylor said.

“Yes, it's a scary time, but we need to stand up and say, even if you are afraid, I'm not afraid, or even if I am afraid, I'm strong. I am who I am and you can't take that away from me,” she added.

After receiving positive support, Klaus-Taylor tweeted, “Than you for all the love and support since last night – it truly means a lot!” with a rainbow flag emoji and an emoji face blowing a kiss with one eye open.
