That’s the most important thing: giving people the space to show up fully as who they are.’Sharing the shoot on her Instagram page, Cynthia added: ‘Nerves and fear have gotten in the way of sharing all of who I am, and today with #Pride and with wonderful people beside me I’m sharing a little more.’She went on to thank editor in chief Edward Enniful for ‘giving me the space and loving on me,’ stating that the cover was a ‘dream come true.’‘Thank you @cynthiaerivo for trusting us with your story ❤️’, Edward commented in response.This isn’t the first time Cynthia has spoken publicly about her sexuality, previously chatting with Evening Standard about her.
