‘Mostly’ Lesbian – Australian actress Caitlin Stasey Discusses Her Sexuality

Even though she’s currently dating actor Lucas Neff, Australian actress Caitlin Stasey says that she has always considered herself a ‘mostly’ lesbian.

The actress, best known for her roles in ‘Neighbours’, ‘Tomorrow When the War Began’ and ‘Reign’, is bringing issues surrounding body image, sexuality and gender roles to the table through her newly launched herself.com.

On the site she opens up about her sexuality, provoking an new discussion on what it means to be a lesbian.

“I’ve known I was mostly gay ever since I can remember. I know it troubles many people for me to refer to myself as a lesbian considering I have a male partner. 

I think they gather that it trivializes the plight of the LGBTQIA community & although that couldn’t be further from the truth at this point in my life I’m trying to steer as far from labeling as possible.

Compartmentalizing myself only leads to condemnation & contradiction. I’m happier being fluid and I’m happier being honest.”

Her new website shares stories and experiences of other women, as a way to encourage empowerment of women. Each interview given is accompanied by tasteful nude photography giving readers, according to Caitlin…

“Herself is a gesture to women for women by women; a chance to witness the female form in all its honesty without the burden of the male gaze, without the burden of appealing to anyone.

These women are simply & courageously existing, immortalized within these photos. Within their words, their experiences and stories are offered on Herself in the hopes of encouraging solidarity – that maybe we as women will take comfort in the triumphs of others rather than revelling in each other’s defeats. 

Let us reclaim our bodies. Let us take them back from those who seek to profit from our insecurity.”

Caitlin herself has posed full-frontal for the site, while also spilling on sometimes-uncomfortable topics like puberty, masturbating and having “vivid dreams” about women.

    She’s not a lesbian. She’s bisexual, whether she knows it or not.

    If she doesn’t care for labels, why does she even bother trying to label herself as “mostly lesbian?”
    Doesn’t really add up…
