"It was very spur-of-the-moment," Kay told BuzzFeed News, "but I felt like it was time."

"I'm gay," she told Sam. "I love you no matter what," her sister wrote back. Kay said that telling her was "a big relief and a weight off [her] shoulders."

Kay advised that people should make sure they're ready before coming out. "Because something wild like this attention could happen."

She also added that "it's important to tell people you love. If they don’t accept it, just keep living your life.”
