Anna Akana, a YouTuber and actress, wasn’t expecting to win Best Actor in a Drama Series when she got drunk at the Streamy Awards and came out as queer during her acceptance speech.
The 29-year-old has 2.4 million subscribers, and her Youtube Red show, Youth & Consequences, got her the award. As she walked on stage to give her speech, she didn’t mean to come out, according to Pink News.
She admitted after the show that it came down to the alcohol.
“I did not expect to win Best Actor in a Drama Series cause I’ve been nominated every year but never win—so I got very inebriated and came out as bisexual for the first time ever publicly,” she wrote on Facebook.
Akana also explained the importance of voting and urged voters to get out to the polls on Nov. 6.
