Humberly González Is Not Gay; She Identifies Herself as Queer!

She was able to embrace herself and come out to the public more readily after playing these roles. She even discussed how her acting motivated her to be more honest about her sexuality, as well as what it means to her to play Latina LGBT characters.
You may imagine that Humberly González sought LGBT characters to provide that representation because she has been outspoken about her sexuality. However, she was cast in LGBT roles before coming out publicly, and she claims she didn't seek out those roles.
Despite being in the closet herself, González was able to play multiple LGBT characters, beginning with her part as Vanessa on The CW's In The Dark. Though she has subsequently come to accept herself and be more honest with her audience, her first part was a significant milestone for her. She explained,
Back then, I was like, 'Oh my gosh.' I was so scared. I was actually really scared to step into that because it was so new for me, too.
Later, Humberly González went on to play several LGBT characters after her role as Vanessa on In the Dark, including Brooklyn on Utopia Falls and Sophie on Ginny & Georgia. Speaking on her role in Utopia Falls, she stated,
With Brooklyn, they never really talk about her sexuality. Everything is just kind of normalized, and she just is who she is and loves who she loves. That was so refreshing because that's always how I felt ... So for me to play these characters that are just accepted right away was so important.
She wasn't sure if or how she wanted to come out as queer. She stated she was thinking, "Do I need to post about it? Who do I talk to?" But, by playing characters like Brooklyn and Sophie, whose sexuality was accepted without a major come-out, she realized she could do the same.
However, Humberly González believes that these characters have made others feel more secure in their own identities. It was because of them that she felt comfortable sharing her sexuality. She said she's had a lot of nice comments from viewers who related with Sophie and were delighted to see someone they could identify with on-screen, especially since the first season of Ginny & Georgia premiered.
