“I was asked, ‘Is this your official coming out?’ and I was like, ‘Coming out from where?’ I wasn’t anywhere to come out of.  I never lived a sexually repressed life. I just love who I love when I love them.”

She added that her marriage was not about gender.

“It has everything to do with being an amazing person and she is the most beautiful soul I have ever met in my life.” 

Jessica Betts adds that the connection was instant.

“I knew there was something the moment I met her…But when I fell in love with [Niecy] is when I desired no one else.  [Then] I knew.”

Niecy Nash also said that while her love for her new wife is new, she has always loved her soul.

“Our being in love is new, but loving her as a soul, I’ve done that from the beginning,”
