Jill’s Coming Out Story from I Want the World to Know on Vimeo.

Jill Bennett is a gorgeous, talented, and remarkably intelligent out actress in Hollywood. Originally from Indiana, Jill studied theater at Bradley University in Illinois and came out to her friends and family at 19. Although it took her mom a few years to accept her sexuality, Jill, courageously, never made any apologies for living her life the way she knew she should. For this reason, among many, she is a huge role model in the lesbian community. The support and dedication that she has for her many adoring fans proves that she also has an enormous heart. Jill is unafraid of sharing her opinions with the world, which makes her a fearless leader for so many women who are scared to come out. Jill’s story is powerful and inspiring; her tenacity and courage are awe-inspiring, and she is undoubtedly making a huge difference in the world and in the LGBTQ community by simply being herself and fighting for what she believes in.
