Netflix hit TV series “Orange Is The New Black” writer Lauren Morelli has ended things with her husband and is now dating cast member Samira Wiley who plays “Poussey” on the show.
Lauren written a letter on Mic to express herself, saying:
“In Piper and Alex, I’d found a mouthpiece for my own desires and a glimmer of what my future could look like,”
“I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set. It wasn’t so much one thing, but the sum of many small details: how uncomfortable I felt around groups of lesbians or how I considered myself (shrug) a “not very sexual person.” When considered alone, these seemed like little quirks that made me me. Wanting to read a book instead of have sex is a perfectly reasonable preference to have, right?
But on set, these small moments came into sharp relief, and I found myself answering to an endless stream of cast members who peppered me with questions like a gaggle of kindergartners curious about their new teacher. “Are you dating anyone?” “You’re married?” “To a man?” “But you used to kiss girls?” “Do you miss it?”
I was finally forced to consider a question that had never, ever occurred to me before: Holy shit, am I gay?”
