Rosario Dawson Appears to Come Out as Member of LGBTQ Community

Rosario Dawson opens up about her sexuality in a revealing new interview.

While sitting down with Bustle, the “Briarpatch” star was asked about her June 2018 Instagram post celebrating Pride Month.

“I will not be ashamed. this is just who I am. and who I was meant to be. No mistakes. so right here I stand. I’m out on my own two feet. no you will not tear me down. no my heart will not be bound. sing it loud. sing it loud. I’m proud. I’m proud,” she wrote while re-posting a video of an R&B singer.

Though many believed this was her way of coming out, the actress made clear to the publication, “People kept saying that I [came out]... I didn’t do that… I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out.”

However, the 40-year-old then confessed, “I mean, I guess I am now.”

After this reveal, the “Daredevil” alum clarified that she has never been in a same-sex union.

“I’ve never had a relationship in that space, so it’s never felt like an authentic calling to me,” she added.

In the piece, Dawson also spoke about her boyfriend, Senator Cory Booker, who she has seen since October 2018.

While referencing her daughter Isabella (17), who she adopted in 2014, Rosario remarked, “It’s the first time I felt like I had to be responsible about my choice of love, which is a challenging thing to do. If you fall in love, you fall in love. But there’s another aspect I had to consider: what this meant in [putting] a microscope on my family and particularly on my daughter.”

“But in each other I think we found our person,” she concluded.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, Dawson posted a cute video of the two where they “spread the love.”
