Actress Natalie Morales Comes Out as Queer

Natalie Morales, best known for her work on the television shows Parks and Recreation and The Grinder, has come out as queer.

The 32-year-old actress opened up about her life in an article on Amy Poehler‘s Smart Girls website.

Natalie talked about coming to terms with her sexuality as a teenager and her first relationship with a girl in high school, which she hid from everyone including her mother. She also talked about her experience going to a lesbian club and the relationships she has been in over the years that have helped her open up to herself.

“I don’t like labeling myself, or anyone else, but if it’s easier for you to understand me, what I’m saying is that I’m queer. What queer means to me is just simply that I’m not straight. That’s all. It’s not scary, even though that word used to be really, really scary to me,” Natalie said.

“I think it’s important that I tell you that this familiar face you see on your TV is the Q part of LGBTQ, so that if you didn’t know someone who was queer before, you do now. I also think it’s important that if there are any scared kids out there, like I was, I can tell you that whole ‘It Gets Better’ campaign is true. It does. And you’re not weird. You’re not bad. You’re not unholy. You’re exactly what God intended you to be,” she added.

    no surprise with that face

    isn’t this the same as being a lesbian or does she have sex with farm animals?

  • LAChris08

    Its basically she’s a lesbian. But why not just call it as she is queer. As for farm animals, a bit uncalled for. Normal people, gay or straight, don’t see animals as a proper sexual partners.

    Quite a beautiful face IMO.

    She could also be bi/queer, you know ;-)…

  • TaraTeller

    I removed that part because you are absolutely correct.

  • TaraTeller

    then just say that.

    Makes perfect business sense. How else would she expect to get anywhere in Homowood?

    Jesus CAN and WILL free us from any sin and bondage, including the lgbt lifestyle, if we let Him.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-11

    9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [by perversion], nor those who participate in homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers [whose words are used as weapons to abuse, insult, humiliate, intimidate, or slander], nor swindlers will inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God.11 And such were some of you [before you believed]. But you were washed [by the atoning sacrifice of Christ], you were sanctified [set apart for God, and made holy], you were justified [declared free of guilt] in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the [Holy] Spirit of our God [the source of the believer's new life and changed behavior].

    We can be free in Christ but it comes down to wanting to be free and giving Him our whole heart. He wants to be Lord over ALL areas of our life.
