In a series of Twitter messages shared with BuzzFeed on Wednesday, one anonymous fan hopes to show the world how Rihanna helped him embrace his sexuality and come out of the closet. According to BuzzfFed, when the fan felt he had no one to turn to, he decided to reach out to his idol on Twitter for counsel—and not only did RiRi respond with some good advice, but she also encouraged him not to let his fears keep him from living his truth.

Rather than just leave the fan with a few wise words before disappearing into the ether, however, RiRi actively kept up with his progress—and continuously voiced how proud she was that he finally felt more comfortable with his sexuality. With her encouragement, the fan began to come out to his close friends and family, providing Rihanna with updates along the way. 

As the fan explained to BuzzFeed, Rihanna's messages helped him realize that he has no reason to be ashamed of his sexuality. He hopes to be fully "out" to everyone by the time he meets Rihanna in person during her Anti world tour.
