Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello sends an inspiring message to a transgender fan (PHOTO)
Last year, Fifth Harmony's Camila Cabello met a fan who went by the name of Joey, and the transgender teen was so inspired by Cabello that she has since made a life-changing decision.
The pair recently met again at a Fifth Harmony meet-and-greet, but Joey has since renamed herself Camila Jo in honor of her idol. She also credits Cabello for giving her the courage to transition.
Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the singer shared a picture of herself and Camila, along with her fan's inspirational story.
"The stunning, confident, magical woman standing next to me is named Camila Joe," Cabello wrote. "I met her during a signing last year when her name was 'Joey' and she told me I inspired her to have the courage to transition. And right before my eyes, today I saw a beautiful, confident woman (with IMMACULATE EYELINER by the way). She told me she was going to go by the name of Camila Joe and I kinda lost it with excitement. I don't know your Twitter but I just wanted to say how proud I am of you."
The "BO$$" hit maker went on to share some beautiful words of encouragement, saying, "There's a light in someone's eyes when they become who they want to be. Today you lit up the whole room. i love you darlin. WORK THAT POSE."
Cabello's love for her fans and support of the LGBT community is truly inspirational, and we think the world needs more young stars just like her.
Camila Jo also shared a picture of herself and Cabello, writing a beautiful message about how she can continue her journey knowing she is beautiful and capable of anything.
