Ruby Rose says it's "empowering, strong, and feminist" to be so open about her sexuality
Actress Ruby Rose has revealed that she came out to her mother when she was twelve.
During an interview on 'Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist', the 'Orange Is The New Black' star explained that it was a surprisingly straightforward moment because her mother told her that she already knew:
"That was a fine thing to do though. When I told her, she was like, 'I know.' She knew when I was six apparently. I was like, 'Really, mom,' I don't even think I knew then. I didn't think it was possible. Apparently it is and it makes sense."
"I was just worried because I didn't know it was a thing. I knew how I felt and what I kind of identified as, but the words gay or lesbian... I didn't know anyone else that was gay or a lesbian. So, I didn't really know how to word it. So I was just like, 'I think I should let you know that when I eventually get a boyfriend, there'll be a girl.' And she was just like, 'I know."
She also opened up about being empowered by having a fulfilling sex life and added: "I'm very confident and in tune with my sexuality. I feel very blessed for that, because in different places around the world, people can't be. I'm lucky I can explore. I have a very healthy sex life, and there's something very empowering, strong, and feminist about being open and comfortable in that world."
