Tessa Thompson Comes Out As Bisexual, Says She Loves Janelle Monae "Deeply"

Now, Thompson is letting us all know that it's perfectly fine for you to think whatever you want because she's comfortable in her bisexuality.

Tessa Thompson has publicly confronted the rumours surrounding the possible relationship between her and Janelle Monáe.

Tessa Thompson became a breakout star of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to Thor: Ragnarok, but now she's making headlines for an entirely different reason.

Capital Gazette Leaves Its Editorial Section Blank Day After Shooting
A journalist from The New York Times has tweeted a video of police officers outside the building following the deployment by NYPD. They include one of the oldest newspapers in the United States, The Gazette , which traces its origins back to 1727.


"It's tricky because Janelle and I are just really private people and we're both trying to navigate how you reconcile wanting to have that privacy and space", she says. "I can take things for granted because of my family - it's so free and you can be anything that you want to be".

Tessa opened up about her own sexuality in the same interview, admitting that she was "attracted to both men and women" - though she said that conversation should never really had to be had. If I bring a woman home, [or] a man, we don't even have to have the discussion ...

While no queer artist owes anyone any insight into their relationships or sexuality, Thompson acknowledges that visibility is important, especially to people who stay in the closet out of fear. "I could tuck all my hair up into a cap, and suddenly people would treat me differently because they'd assume I was a boy". So, do I have a responsibility to talk about that? "Do I have a responsibility to say in a public space that this is my person?" she asks. Though the actress doesn't confirm the pair are dating, she does say they "love each other deeply".

"We're so close, we vibrate on the same frequency", Thompson explained.

The actress/activist continued that that aspect of her identity and the freedom of her loved ones knowing have influenced her relationship with Monáe and how she wants it to inspire others.

And we are so happy that it doesn't, because you two are goals. "It doesn't bother me". Enjoy your insane, classic life.
