Earlier in February this year, Singh came out and admitted that she is bisexual. In a post on Instagram, she opened up about her sexuality as she wrote, "Female, Coloured, Bisexual. Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers. No matter how many “boxes” you check, I encourage you to do the same."

June is celebrated as the LGBTQ month worldwide. Many of Singh's friends cheered for her as she posted her photo from the parade including singer Neha Kakkar and actress Nargis Fakhri. 

On the work front, Singh recently announced that she will have her own NBC late night show named 'A Little Late with Lilly Singh'. She is the first Asian woman to have got her own late night show on the network.
