For the Record

Reneé Rapp sets the record straight about her sexuality

Reneé Rapp has “had enough of you witches” and is setting the record straight about her sexuality.

Rapp has quickly become one of the entertainment industry’s rising stars. From a sold out tour to leading the musical adaptation of Mean Girls, 2024 is keeps getting better for the 24-year-old. And she does it all while proudly showing off her true queer colors.

Rapp has been very outspoken about her sexuality, adding it to her music and exploring it in the roles she takes on, like in her role as Leighton in The Sex Lives of College Girls. But we humans have every right to explore ourselves, sexuality included. That may mean we change how we identify, something Rapp knows well.

Now, it seems that the “Snow Angel” singer had a few things to get off her chest about how she identifies. In a tweet on X (formerly Twitter), Rapp stated that “if I say I’m a lesbian I am a lesbian and if someone says they’re bi they are bi I’ve had enough of you witches.”

Enough said, right? While Rapp previously came out as bisexual in a 2022 interview, she has since identified as a lesbian and continues to find fun ways to tell us this. From waving the lesbian flags during performances, to switching from “bisexual lighting to lesbian lighting during performance of “Not My Fault” on Saturday Night Live (the same night Bowen Yang called her “our little lesbian intern, Reneé”, to outwardly saying she’s a lesbian during her Mean Girls press tour.

Unfortunately, it looks like Rapp is dealing with doubters when it comes to her lesbian identity, but the internet wasn’t having it.

First and foremost, who are we to tell someone how they should identify? The internet had a few words on that.

Additionally, when someone tells you who they are, believe them. Something the internet had to remind everyone about.

Also, sexuality isn’t just an identity, it’s a journey. We’re all traversing on different paths that explore who we are. If someone says they’re bisexual, then they’re bisexual. And three months later, if they say they’re a lesbian, well, guess what? They are and that’s valid, something Rapp fans were quick to point out.

And while Rapp “had enough of you witches” and keeps having to prove that she’s a lesbian, your sexuality is your own business and no one is owed a description, nor an explanation about it.

All of that aside, Rapp is a card-carrying member of the lesbian community and she’ll take no further questions at this time.
