Good Monday morning! Chicago Fire star Monica Raymund confirmed she is bisexual on Twitter Sunday when she tweeted an article about a Norwegian artist's protest against Russia’s gay propaganda law. In her tweet Raymund wrote, “So proud to be Bi and excited about this movement during the Olympics."
Raymund is no stranger to her female fans having garnered a devoted lesbian following playing the Asst. States Attorney who connived and flirted with Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) on The Good Wife for a season before moving on to play strong, sexy paramedic/firefighter-in-training Gabriela Dawson on NBC’s smoking hit Chicago Fire.
Unsure of what Raymund was expressing in her tweet, one fan pointedly asked if Raymund had just come out as bisexual, to which Raymund replied, “Yup. Hey Ladies ;P.”
And in case there was any question remaining, Raymund pointedly tweeted, “Nope I didn’t just come out --you just late to the party. But I have drinks for all y’all.” She then hashtagged that she’s been out and proud for 10 years.
But for those women thinking there's a new eligigle out celebrity out there to fantasize about, Raymund has been happily married to a man for a while.
Something else fans might not know about Raymund is that she is a Julliard grad with a killer set of pipes. In 2010 she appeared as the lesbian team captain of the volleyball team of a Catholic school in a staged reading of the musical Volleygirls singing the showstopper (at least for us) “I Like Girls.” Here’s Raymund’s performance!
