Kylie encouraged JoJo to come out 

"The day after I posted on TikTok, I was on FaceTime with my girlfriend," she explained. "The day after I posted the Born This Way TikTok, and we were just talking about it, and talking about all of the love that came in and we were both like, 'Technically, I still hadn't confirmed it,'" she said. "And I was like, 'I kind of want to post this picture - with the 'Best Gay Cousin Ever' t-shirt - on my real story.' And she was super encouraging. She was like, 'Do it!' I was like, 'Alright!' And I did it."
