Aubrey Plaza confirmed that she can fall in love with both men and women. During a recent interview with The Advocate magazine, Plaza knew that it probably doesn’t come as a shock to anyone, but she still had no problem coming out.

When asked whether girls come on to her often, Plaza told The Advocate, “I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there’s something masculine about my energy. Girls are into me — that’s no secret. Hey, I’m into them too. I fall in love with girls and guys.”

She also talked about how she’s been involved in the LGBT community from as early as she can remember: “There was this gay community [in Wilmington, Delaware] that really welcomed me. All my friends were gay. I went to an all-girls Catholic school in a very conservative neighborhood, but I felt at 12, 13, that my home was this theater and that those were my people.”

For anyone who was paying attention — including those people in her family — Plaza’s confession is probably a little obvious. She said, “I have a gay aunt and a gay uncle... My younger sister is a lesbian, so it’s just in my blood, I guess. She came out to me when she was 17 or 18, and for, like, a millisecond I was surprised. Then I replayed our entire life in my mind, and I was like, ‘Of course! Of course, I know that!’”

Having the ability to fall in love with both genders hasn’t helped Plaza's odds of finding someone she wants to date, however. She said, “I am the last person on earth I’d ever go on a date with,” adding that her ideal first date would be to not go on a date at all.

Honestly, if we can get that non-date dating trend going, I’m totally on board.

As for her other confessions, we’re sending big congratulations to Plaza. Even if it isn’t huge news, anytime someone is brave enough to be their authentic self, it should be celebrated.
