Rosario Dawson Comes Out

Rosario Dawson has just come out as part of the LGBTQ community. But are you surprised? For years there have been rumors and speculation about the 40-year-old actress’ sexuality. Now Dawson is putting it all to rest.

In an interview with Bustle, the “Briarpatch” star clarified a 2018 Instagram post in which she paid homage to the LGBTQ community during Pride month. While folks assumed that the social-media post was, in effect, her coming out, Dawson said  it wasn’t before then … coming out.

“People kept saying that I [came out] . . . I didn’t do that. I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out,” she explained. “I mean, I guess I am now.”

Dawson, who has been in a relationship with Sen. Cory Booker since October 2018, also clarified that she’s never actually been in a queer relationship. “I’ve never had a relationship in that space, so it’s never felt like an authentic calling to me.”

The Instagram post in question featured footage of rapper Chika singing “Proud,” a repurposing of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You.”

In the caption, Dawson posted the song’s lyrics and added her own message: “Happy pride month! sending love to my fellow lgbtq+ homies. keep being strong in the face of adversity. loud & proud. here’s a lil throwbyke to last year.”

On dating Booker, she admitted the public scrutiny has been a challenge to navigate as she raises her daughter, Isabella, 17, whom Dawson adopted in 2014. But said added: “In each other I think we found our person.”
