Roberta Colindrez's Current Life: Dating Someone Secretly?
Roberta Colindrez can drag everyone's attention to herself with her alluring personality. Her short black hair with a punk style is the thing many of her fans love her.
Colindrez is best known for playing the role of a formative lesbian character named Joan in the Tony-winning musician Fun Home.
During an interview, she stated that she'd never know her sexuality if she hadn't portrayed the role. She revealed being queer and it was a precious gift for her.
"If I’m not playing a lesbian, then I’m somebody whose sexuality is just never brought up, which I like."
Some people say, you wouldn’t know you were queer until you slept with a man - but, no, I know I’m queer because I know I don’t want to sleep with a man.
Furthermore, she stated that Ellen DeGeneres coming out as a gay made a huge impact in her life. Ellen's courage and dare influenced her life to come out of the closet.
"Does it count to say, 'When Ellen came out on her show?' Because that was huge for me. I remember watching that as a kid and being like lesbians are real."
She's quite open about her sexuality but her personal life is still a mystery.
We can say that she's most probably single at the moment. Hope to see her in a new romantic life in the following days.
