Like her character on The L Word, Kate Moennig is a lesbian. She is open and proud of her sexuality.
Kate told RuPaul during an interview on his podcast that Shane McCutcheon helped her come into her identity.
“Did you always know that you were lesbian?” she was asked, to which she said she was not raised in a helping environment.
She said, “Well, I grew up Catholic, and I went to Catholic school for 13 years, so I was not really in an environment to explore that, especially at that time in the ’80s and the ’90s.”
“Back then, you didn’t. That sh** did not exist,” said the actress, recalling her experience.
Nevertheless, Kate did not have any regrets. On the contrary, she is proud of who she is and is married to the love of her life.
