Michaela's aunt, Vicki Kennedy, who is married to Max Kennedy, also left some encouraging words under the post, praising the 23-year-old for beautifully and powerfully expressing herself. 

In a June 3 Instagram post, Michaela came out as queer as she heartily commemorated Pride month. The youngster uploaded a two-slide post celebrating the LGBTQ+ community and showing her solidarity and support.

The first snapshot showed her posing for a selfie as she donned a charcoal grey long-sleeved top and a sky blue face cap that read the words, “gay for you.” Behind her stood two rainbowed-colored flags.

The second frame had her looking radiant as she held onto her white-furred pet dog and posed outdoors with the backdrop of aesthetic greenery and a cottage.

In the accompanying caption, Michaela laid bare her thoughts, announcing that she is queer while addressing the societal prejudice plaguing the LGBTQ+ community. She offered encouragement, writing:

“To those who are contending with the compulsive heterosexuality our society force feeds us... please know that you are not alone."

She showed appreciation to people who fought to maintain the community’s freedom while calling out organizations that suppress the voices of the LGBTQ+ community by restricting their labels to fetishes.

Michaela showed love to people finding their sexuality and people still keeping it away from public knowledge. She also encouraged the LGBTQ+ allies to amplify their support beyond the idea of gay marriages.

After her candid announcement, Andrew released a statement to People Magazine about his daughter’s coming out, making it known that he supported her and couldn't be more proud of her truth.

Michaela is the youngest of three kids that Andrew shares with his ex-wife and human rights activist, Kerry Kennedy. Kerry and Andrew were together for 15 years before their divorce in 2005.
