Orange Is The New Black couple Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli have taken their relationship into the spotlight according to the Daily Mail, as they are seen leaving an Emmys bash hand-in-hand. As well as partying together at the Emmys bash, the pair also posed on Saturday night together at the Variety And Women In Film Annual Pre-Emmy Celebration event.

Wiley plays Poussey Washington on the Netflix series, where as Morelli, a key writer for Orange in the New Black, came out in May in a touching personal piece, entitled ‘While Writing for ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ I Realized I Am Gay‘.

‘I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set. It wasn’t so much one thing, but the sum of many small details: how uncomfortable I felt around groups of lesbians or how I considered myself (shrug) a “not very sexual person.” When considered alone, these seemed like little quirks that made me me… Wanting to read a book instead of have sex is a perfectly reasonable preference to have, right?”
