It’s your girl, Amber


”I always felt like I was a strong woman. There’s not much that could break me”

Amber Whittington first knew she was attracted to women when she was just six years old. “I had a crush on one of my babysitters. I was like, ‘Woah! Ok, why do I want to bring her flowers?’”

She’s perched in her infamous closet with racks of stylish threads and flawless trainers lining the white wall behind her. It feels strange and, lez-be-honest, more than a little bit exciting to be talking to Amber while she’s in the exact location I’ve seen in so many of her viral videos.
