A lot of people have been asking if Kate McKinnon is gay.

To answer that question, No. Kate Mckinnon is biologically born as a female person. McKinnon also revealed that she is a lesbian to the public.

Though it may confuse a lot of people, the use of the term “gay” is referred to a man only. McKinnon’s sarcastic remarks about being gay in her Golden Globes speech tend to confuse the public about her sexual orientation.

McKinnon is finally out of the closet. The 37-year old actress opens up about being a lesbian as she presented DeGeneres’ award during her emotional speech at the Golden Globes. The tearful McKinnon mentioned the struggles and hardships of coming to terms with her real sexuality.

The actress gave credits to Ellen DeGeneres for the role she played in her childhood. She also indicated that her sitcom Ellen made it less scary for her to accept herself. Furthermore, McKinnon candidly thanked DeGeneres for her efforts in representing the LGBTQ community on the screen, as well as giving her inspiration to be an actress.

Kate McKinnon is Not Married Yet

As of July 2021, there has been no information about the actress’s marriage. It is due to the fact that she has kept her personal life away from the limelight.

Her Current Partner/ Girlfriend

Kate McKinnon has been dating a number of different women throughout her relationship history.

In her 2019 Vanity Fair profile, the New York Times’ controversial columnist Bari Weiss revealed that she dated McKinnon. When they were studying at Columbia University, the couple started dating together. However, the couple’s relationship became inconsistent; they ended up as friends instead.

McKinnon has kept herself silent from the limelight about her personal life. Despite this, McKinnon publicly revealed her relationship with Jackie Abbott following their appearance at the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards. Abbott embraced Mckinnon immediately when she heard her name called for the award.

Consequently, sources made it unclear how the lovers met. Moreover, Abbott is a professional actress and photographer residing in the city of New York. According to sources, the two share the same sense, Abbott being also a goofball and funny individual.
