Sara Ramirez is #SpeakingHerTruth.
Over the weekend, the Grey’s Anatomy star took to Twitter and revealed to her 702K followers that she’s bisexual.
“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 wrote. “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 & Irish sides. I am deeply invested in projects that allow our youth’s voices to be heard, and that support our youth in owning their own complex narratives so that we can show up for them in the ways they need us to.”
The 41-year-old actress addressed her sexuality prior to speaking at the 40 to None Summit, which “is a unique two-day conversation that brings together awesome people doing awesome things to address LGBT youth homelessness across the country,” according to their official website.
Ramirez famously portrayed a bisexual character, Dr. Callie Torres, on Grey’s Anatomy for 10 seasons before bowing out of the show this past May.
