- JoJo Siwa attended her first public Pride celebration in West Hollywood earlier in June.
- Her girlfriend surprised her at the event after previously telling her she couldn’t attend due to work.
- The couple got together in early 2021 and split later that year, before getting back together in 2022.
JoJo Siwa’s girlfriend, Kylie Prew, surprised her by showing up at Siwa’s first Pride parade after saying that she wouldn’t be able to make it due to work.
In the first episode of Siwa’s new Facebook Watch series “JoJo Goes,” Siwa prepared to participate in her first Pride celebration at the West Hollywood Pride parade that took place on June 5. In collaboration with creative director Diana “Dee Dee” Kazandjian, Siwa helped to design a float for the parade.
However, Prew initially wasn’t able to make the celebration because she had to work, telling Siwa over a video call that she would “be there if I could.”
On the day of the parade, Siwa told her best friend Ezra Sosa that the only thing that would make it better was if her girlfriend was there. When she returned to her float after walking around the yet-to-commence parade, there was a surprise waiting for her.
“Baby!” Siwa called out when she spotted Prew hiding behind a fan on her float. “You told me you couldn’t come.”
After embracing Siwa on the float, Prew said that Sosa was “the best friend in the entire world,” confirming that he had orchestrated her appearance.
“You think you would be at your first Pride without your girlfriend?” Sosa said.
Siwa came out in January 2021, sparking support from celebrities and other members of the LGBTQ+ community. Shortly after coming out, she said on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” that she had a girlfriend who had inspired her to come out. The couple broke up in late 2021, Siwa confirmed on Paris Hilton’s “This Is Paris” podcast in November, but Siwa announced that they were back together in May.
At the end of the episode, Siwa thanked her friends for taking part in the parade with her.
“Thank you for being here with me. Thank you for doing this for the community with me. Thank you for spreading love with me. Thank you for being in my life and being there for me,” Siwa said. “And, y’all, that was literally the best freaking day, and I owe you all the world.”
