Tessa Thompson confirmed that she is bi


We are not surprised about it — flirting with Janelle Monae in her music video definitely was not accidental. But now it becomes official — Tessa Thompson opened up to the media about being attracted to both sexes. The Thor: Ragnarok actress (by the way, her character there is bi too, though her sexuality is not explicitly revealed in the movie), said that she hated labels (we did labeled her and we are sorry if it hurt her feelings), but she is definitely attracted to boys and girls equally. In an interview with Net-A-Porter, Thompson said that thanking to her family and to her free, democratic upbringing, she always felt that it was possible for her not to limit herself in whom to be — she always expressed herself freely and chose the direction to move with no limits. She could come home with a boyfriend or with a girlfriend, the reaction was the same — love, support and acceptance. As for possible relationships with Monae, who has recently come out as queer, Tessa revealed: “That was something I was conscientious of in terms of this declaration around Janelle and myself,” she said, “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?” Of course, she does not, but the fans were excited to hear even this kind of response, because she did not deny that there was something between her and Janelle. Let’s see what it might lead to.
