Kinsey is a 17-year-old from New Jersey.

She told BuzzFeed News that she recently came out to her parents after they ​brought up the subject of her sexuality with her. After that, she came out to her Instagram followers.

I think I wanna come out on Instagram today... Imma be like "a year ago today I found out I'd be able to get married in my own country"

She said people have been hugely supportive and excited about the party and have been telling her on Twitter about their own coming out stories.

"I love being a part of such a caring and awesome community," she said. "The best part is seeing how happy the party has made everyone."

"Especially in light of the Pulse shootings this past Pride Month, our community needs a little joy and hope and I'm glad to say my family has helped contribute to that."
