Former ‘What Not To Wear’ Host Comes Out On New Year’s Eve

Former ‘What Not To Wear’ host Stacy London comes out on an Instagram post and introduces her girlfriend of more than a year, musician Cat Yezbak. In her post, the TV personality states it is her “first serious relationship with a woman,” ‘CNN entertainment’ reports. 

"I haven't paraded her around on social media for several reasons: 1) I've had public relationships before and I don't love that. But I want to be clear here that with Cat I felt I owed us the chance to be private since this is my first serious relationship with a woman and I'm sure there will be some hoo-ha about that. But I would never hide her out of shame," London wrote. "2.) It's really easy for me, a privileged white woman who is 50, to suddenly say 'I'm dating a woman' with very few repercussions and I am well aware of that.

“Unlike me, there are countless people in the LGBTQIAP community who have had no choice in who they are, no love from family on which to lean, no support from anyone anywhere,” she added.

“I fell in love, truly in love, with this beautiful, sexy, kind soul and I won't apologize for that but I stand on the shoulders of a community that fought like hell for me to be able to do that openly and proudly and EASILY,” she continues.

“It's one thing to SAY Love is Love. It's another thing to say Love is Passion and Devotion and Sex and mean it without shame or prejudice when talking about the same sex. So I used to date men. Now I date her. That's it. That's all I have to say.”
