Actress Aubrey Plaza: “I Fall in Love with Girls and Guys”

by Hayley Miller July 11, 2016


Actress Aubrey Plaza opened up about her sexual orientation last week, telling The Advocate, “I fall in love with girls and guys.”

“I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there’s something masculine about my energy,” she said. “Girls are into me — that’s no secret. Hey, I’m into them too. I fall in love with girls and guys. I can’t help it.”

Plaza, who is best known for her role in the television show Parks and Recreation, also spoke about her own personal experience with other openly gay and lesbian members of her family.

“My family’s always been very open. I have a gay aunt and a gay uncle, and I grew up thinking that everyone had a gay aunt or uncle. My younger sister is a lesbian,” she added.

Coming out – whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allied – matters. When people know someone who is LGBTQ, they are far more likely to support equality under the law. Beyond that, our stories can be powerful to each other.

Whether it's for the first time ever or the first time today, the experience of coming out and living openly covers the full spectrum of human emotion -- from fear to euphoria. Coming out -- whether it is as LGBTQ or allied -- is a deeply personal journey for each individual. Learn more at HRC’s Coming Out Center.
