Openly Gay Actress Katherine Moennig Is Married, Meet Her Director Wife

“It doesn’t matter how best your family background is; it only matters how much you have achieved on your own so far.”

This saying is best suited to an actress and a producer, Katherine Moennig. Though her parent's professional background belongs to dancing and violin making, she prefers to choose her destiny in Hollywood. She even got featured in series The L Word: Generation Q as Shane and in the movies like Gone, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Everybody’s Fine.

Initially, Katherine debuted on television by featuring in TV series Young Americans, which premiered in 2000. After one year, she played in movies Like Love The Hard Way and The Shipping News simultaneously, including one short film Slo-Mo.

Since then, she has been working obstinately to acquire her dreams, whether it's in acting or in producing movies.

Coming Out As A Lesbian

Katherine had no idea about her sexuality until she got to be part of the series The L Word: Generation Q. She had said in an interview with RuPaul's podcast "What’s The Tee with Michelle Visage" in September 2019:

“When I got The L Word, that’s where my wheels started turning."

As a result, she came out of her closet in 2019.

Past Relationship
