Known primarily as the biseuxal character Callie Torres on the long-running show Grey’s Anatomy, Sara Ramirez has come out in real life as a bisexual. In a speech at the True Colors 40 to None Summit, the 41-year-old told the crowd all the ways she identifies herself including “queer, 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,” Ramirez said.
“And, 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 continued, “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.”
Ramirez is married to banker Ryan DeBolt since 2011.
