Tessa Thompson Comes Out as Bisexual, Says She and Jenelle Monáe “Love Each Other Deeply”

In an interview with PORTERedit, Tessa Thompson opened up about being  bisexual. Although she didn’t confirm that she and Jenelle Monáe rare dating as wildly speculated,  she did say that she and Monáe “love each other deeply.”
Thompson was clear about her sexuality saying: “I’m attracted to men and also to women.” She said: “We’re so close, we vibrate on the same frequency.”  

Speaking about her relationship with the pansexual singer, Thompson said:

“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, and also wanting to use your platform and influence.”

If people want to speculate about what we are, it doesn’t bother me.”

“I can take things for granted because of my family – it’s so free and you can be anything that you want to be. I’m attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, [or] a man, we don’t even have to have the discussion … That was something I was conscientious of in terms of this declaration around Janelle and myself. I want everyone else to have that freedom and support that I have from my loved ones. But so many people don’t. 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?” Thompson said.
