Top Gun/Kelly McGillis

Hello everybody, chief editor Yuki here!

In the news, we now have Kelly McGillis, the American actress who played opposite Tom Cruise in the 1980s hit movie "Top Gun". Just a few days ago, McGillis, who also recently appeared on The L Word as the closeted Army Colonel Gillian Davis during Season 5, came out as a lesbian in an interview on the queer women's website,

Twice divorced and the mother of two teenage daughters, McGillis had long been subject to rumors questioning her sexuality. In the SheWired interview, vlogger Jennifer Corday asked the currently single star whether she was looking for love with a man or woman, to which McGillis responded, "definitely a woman. I'm done with the man thing. I did that and I need to move on in life. That's another part of being true to yourself."

McGillis, now 51, goes into greater depth by sharing how the path to accepting her own sexuality had not been an easy one. She describes coming out as "an ongoing process from the time I was probably 12" and a "long arduous trip for me". She specifically touches on the fact that several events in her life had led her to believe God was punishing her for being gay, a sentiment which she has at last been able to put behind her. She sums up, "life is a freaking journey, and it's about growing and changing, and coming to terms with who and what you are--and loving who and what you are."

Cheers for McGillis's inspirational courage and wishing her the best in lesbian love!
