Inside The Life Of Sister Wives Star Gwendlyn Brown

Gwendlyn Brown first showed up on Sister Wives all the way back in 2010 when she was just eight years old, and viewers have watched her blossom into a fully-fledged adult. The 18-year-old daughter of Kody and Christine Brown is number 10 out of a total 18 children in the family, and the fourth of six for Christine. These days, Gwendlyn is a vocal activist for BLM and LGBTQ rights on social media, unafraid to speak her mind even when it means coming out against her own family's lifestyle — as well as coming out.

As The Sun reported, when questioned by fans on Instagram about whether she'd consider the polygamist life herself, Gwendlyn admitted, "No I'm selfish and would get jealous too easily, but 100 percent support all the women and men who pursue this lifestyle for themselves." This is one reality star kid who's clearly taking her own path in life.

Gwendlyn Brown is unafraid to follow her own path

In December 2019, Soap Dirt reported Gwendlyn had taken her first steps into adulthood by snagging a seasonal job as a chef onboard the Polar Express in Flagstaff, AZ, where the family currently resides. Fans of the show will know the teenager loves to cook, so it was the ideal role for her, and naturally the rest of the extended Brown clan visited the establishment to cheer her on. She has always stood out among her many half siblings, and as The Hollywood Gossip noted, she's not afraid to stand up. In August 2020, rumors began to circulate that Gwendlyn might actually be LGBTQ. 

As TV Shows Ace pointed out, she posted an Instagram Story in which she called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A and included a ThinkProgress report about the chain apparently donating money to anti-LGBTQ charities. "Call me crazy, but the idea of my money being used to teach young lgbtqia folx to hate themselves just doesn't sit right," she argued at the time. A post on Reddit noted the prominent pride rainbow on her Instagram account, too. 

Coming out came very naturally to the Sister Wives star

Fans' suspicions were confirmed when, according to Monsters and Critics, Gwendlyn's since-deactivated Twitter account featured in its bio the descriptor "raging bisexual." According to screen-grabs from the site, someone questioned what she meant by that and Gwendlyn clarified the term "raging" only. She went on to tell The Sun, "I never 'came out' because I was never 'in.' I'm just bi." The Sister Wives kid also shared a post celebrating Pride, featuring BLM insignia with a caption that read, "There wouldn't be any queer liberation to be proud of were it not for the queer people of color that fought to set it all in motion, especially trans women of color." 

Gwendlyn's half-sister Mariah Brown previously came out as gay on the show and is happily engaged to Audrey Kriss, as reported by PeopleThe way may have been paved for Gwendlyn to embrace her authentic self, but as several fans pointed out during their initial discussions on Reddit, she's not the type of person to hide regardless.
