Truly La Virgen is watching over the queer Latinxs of America, as just nine days ago we were blessed with the news that actress/human saltshaker Aubrey Plaza is bisexual, and then today, Queen of My Heart and
star Stephanie Beatriz took to Twitter to confirm that the same is true about her! Yes, this is happening, y’all, both Aubrey Plaza and Stephanie Beatriz like girls. Have we entered into some strange but wonderful dream world? No, we’re awake! I know we forget this a lot, especially right now, but the real world can be pretty cool sometimes.

In a very smooth move, Beatriz spring boarded off of Plaza’s announcement, sharing the quote “I fall in love with girls and guys. I can’t help it.” and added an enthusiastic “Yup” of her own. When a follower asked if that meant what we all thought (and hoped) it meant, Beatriz tweeted “yes y’all.” followed by the emoji for girl kissing boy, A-OK and girl kissing girl, A-OK. Excellent message and excellent use of emoji.
If you aren’t already obsessed with Beatriz, she’s best known for playing Detective Rosa Diaz on
where she stars alongside other awesome and hilarious ladies Melissa Fumero and Chelsea Peretti. Diaz is perhaps the biggest, most intimidatingly sexy badass on TV right now, and one of the funniest characters on one of the funniest shows on TV. In real life, however, Beatriz seems like a total sweetheart, often tweeting about her love of dancing, pizza and her cute dog. She also had roles in the terrific film
This collage, made by Madeleine Flores was my phone background for several months.
Both Rosa Diaz and Stephanie Beatriz are gems and we’re lucky to have them in our community. As a queer Latina, it always warms my heart and fills me with hope to see other LGBTQ Latinxs step forward. And seriously, ugh, that hair, those cheekbones, that smile! Stephanie Beatriz likes girls, Stephanie Beatriz is bisexual, today is a good day.

YES YES YES YES YESSSSS – I’ve had the hugest crush on her forever.
(Am I the only one that ships Rosa and Amy with every fiber of her being? And Rosa and Gina? And Rosa and Everyone?)
I ship Rosa and Amy like my life depends on it so I am absolutely LIVING @ this news.
(It was enough that she’s going hard for Kate McKinnon. [Insert deity] Bless!)
Yes! I totally ship Rosa x Amy. Now if only that annoying Jake Peralta can get outta the picture..
All of my celebrity crushes are coming out as bi and this is such a wonderful time to be alive!!!
she pinged literally everyone’s radars, so its good to know we were right!! yay.
Another reason to love her. Ross Diaz is such a badass. She brings such depth to that character.
Yes this was very relevant to my interests. Also, yaaaaaaaaaaay!
I almost can’t remember what it was like to have a crush on a celebrity and think, “Too bad they’re straight.” And I love it.
This makes me so happy. I just hope that Rosa Diaz follows suit soon 😉
This comment follows five minutes of hyperventilating/beaming/fanning myself/texting everyone I know (well, everyone I know who would care). She is my FAVORITE.
