Stephanie Allynne Reveals Having Sexuality Crisis Upon Meeting Future Wife Tig Notaro

Allynne, in her interviews, has mentioned that she thought she was straight until she met her future spouse Tig Notaro.

The duo met in 2012 when both of them went to an audition for an animated movie. While in the meeting room, Allynne focused on one of the other actors, a thin woman with cropped hair.

She heard her say, "Whenever a director comes up to give me a note, I say, 'Before you give me a note, I just have to tell you, I have no range. But go ahead. What were you going to say?'" which Allynne thought was very funny.

She later went to the sign-in sheet and found the woman's name: Tig Notaro and the rest is history.

The pair then again met and worked together on the comedy film In a World... and began a text friendship.

Comedian Notaro, while remembering those, said:

I started bringing my phone to the bathtub—I just didn't want to miss anything.

After a few flirtatious text messages on Valentine's Day, Allynne invited Notaro to meet her at a bar.

The duo met, and one thing led to another, and they kissed for the first time.

While Notaro was already out of the closet and very comfortable with her sexuality, it was not the same for Allynne.

She had never kissed a woman before, and the feelings that she was having were confusing and scary for her.

The next day after the kiss, confused Allynne sent Notaro an email stating: "I had a little mental crisis. I wrote Tig the longest email: 'I like you, I liked kissing you, but I just want you to know I am not gay.'"

The actress once told People, "Everything about her felt right. I knew I liked her, I knew I cared about her and that sent me into an identity crisis spiral. I felt the need to label myself. Was I gay? Was I bi? Was I still straight? Was I ever straight?"

Similarly. in her interview with NBC News, Allynne said:  I really did think I was straight. Then when I met Tig and fell in love, I was like, "Oh, this feels completely different. Oh, I'm gay.

It took her six months to realize what she was feeling and what she wanted. Notaro was by her side all this time and helped her learn and accept sexuality.

"It took me six months to realize those labels were ridiculous. Once I was able to own my true feelings it was all easy and beautiful. I now don't believe in the labels", says Allynne.

The couple has been together ever since, facing, fighting, and living every stage of life from a courtship, a cancer battle, a blissful marriage, and twin sons.
