Grey’s Anatomy actress Sara Ramirez revealed the truth about her sexuality on Saturday. Ramirez announced on her speech at the True Colors Fund’s 40 to None Summit held in Los Angeles that she is bisexual.
Ramirez has been known to keep everything about her life in private. However, during the said event, she shared something special and intimate about her.
In a report shared by Us Weekly, Ramirez started her speech by addressing the problems that the youth is facing today, most especially on feeling homelessness on the inside.
“So many of our youth experiencing homelessness are youth whose lives touch on many intersections — whether they be gender identity, gender expression, race, class, sexual orientation, religion, citizenship status,” she said as she began her speech.
As part of her speech, she shared that she herself has experienced this homelessness inside and these different intersections in her life. However, she would always invest in projects that address voices of youth to be heard. She would help support the youth in every way she can.
“And this is because of the intersections that exist in my own life: woman, multi-racial woman, woman of color, queer, bisexual, Mexican-Irish American, immigrant, and raised by families heavily rooted in Catholicism on both my Mexican and Irish sides,” she added.
In an article by E! News, Ramirez’ husband, Ryan DeBolt has never spoken about the actress’ sexuality but he admitted that there was a time in the past that he questioned his wife’s bisexual character on the show Grey’s Anatomy.
Meanwhile,even previously, Ramirez would receive hate mails for playing a lesbian character on TV and why she is open in supporting gay rights.
