Lauren recently came out in an essay for Identities.Mic a few months back, where she talked about the realization that she was homosexual even though she was married to a man.
“I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set,” Lauren wrote. “It wasn’t so much one thing, but the sum of many small details: how uncomfortable I felt around groups of lesbians or how I considered myself (shrug) a “not very sexual person.” When considered alone, these seemed like little quirks that made me me. Wanting to read a book instead of have sex is a perfectly reasonable preference to have, right?”
“I was finally forced to consider a question that had never, ever occurred to me before: Holy sh*t, am I gay?,” Lauren added.
Lauren and Samira have posted just a few pictures on social media together – they reportedly hit the 2014 Emmys together and were seen dancing and holding hands.
