Lauren Jauregui is a singer and songwriter first known for her stint on The X Factor US at the age of 15, which resulted in her becoming a member of the group Fifth Harmony. The group was hugely successful, producing triple-platinum hits and landing a spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014 and 2016. Jauregui also has a successful solo career as well.

In May of 2017, Jauregui was voted “Celebrity of the Year" at the British LGBT Awards. She was later featured on Halsey’s same-sex love song “Strangers” from her 2017 album Hopeless Fountain Kingdom that Billboard called a "long-overdue bisexual milestone in mainstream music".[1]

Halsey specifically chose Jauregui, who is also openly bi, to sing with her on the track, stating, “I just love that Lauren and I are two women who have a mainstream pop presence doing a love song for the LGBT community”.[2]

Jauregui uses her public platform to spread awareness for issues that are very close to her heart, including education, anti-harassment, the importance of voting, human rights, and other social issues.

Lauren came out in November of 2016 in a scathing letter addressed to Donald Trump voters.

I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it. I am proud to be part of a community that only projects love and education and the support of one another.... I am proud to be the granddaughter and daughter of immigrants who were brave enough to leave their homes and come to a whole new world with a different language and culture and immerse themselves fearlessly to start a better life for themselves and their families. [3]

In a 2018 interview with Nylon, Jauregui spoke about her sexuality, 

I’ve learned so much, even about the gender binary since I came out as bisexual, and I’m sure that I could fall in love with anyone as long as their soul was genuine. That’s all that really matters to me. I don’t care about the physical.... But that’s really it, because, at the end of the day, we’re all just humans and if we’re attracted to each other, we’re just attracted to each other. So, I explore that fluidity all the time.[4]
