Megan Rapinoe's Girlfriend Sarah Walsh

07-03-2012: Though we sort of thought that it already was official, it is really now official - Megan Rapinoe is gay. Despite the fact that she has basically admitted as such previously in an interview, Megan Rapinoe officially came out in an interview with Out magazine. The magazine article also makes reference to the fact that Megan Rapinoe's girlfriend, whom she has dated for three years now, is an Australian soccer player. We're trying to figure out who that is, but have been unsuccessful so far. Any tips? We're pretty certain that Megan Rapinoe's girlfriend is Sarah Walsh, a striker for Westfield Matildas and team Australia. Check the pics to the right and let us know if we're right about this.

07-19-2011: Mea culpa. After being directed to an article that appeared in the Windy City Times, it appears that Rapinoe has come out publicly.
Rapinoe is among the most popular Red Stars among the lesbian community, and she's happy about that.

"I think that's a good thing," she said. "I think we need to bring people of all different walks of life into the game. I definitely think there's a place within the Red Stars organization for everyone.

"I want to make people feel like, when they go watch [ the ] team, that there is someone that there's someone like them on the team, and that we're not all the same on the team, that there is diversity. I think that's a good thing for the sport and our team in general."

While Megan Rapinoe has never publicly commented on her sexual orientation, there are a number of unconfirmed rumors floating that suggest her and Abby Wambach used to date. While there is no confirmation to this, Abby has come up repeatedly in our research for Megan Rapinoe's significant other.
Aside from whether she had a fling with Wambach or not, the rest of our research has brought up nothing. We have nothing to suggest that Megan Rapinoe is dating someone, and also nothing to suggest that she's not actually dating anyone. For now, revel in the pics of the 26 year old midfielder.

    She could hook up with Landon Donovan. They'd make a nice couple. Megan Rapinoe + Landon Donovan= GOAL!

    If you watch any of the US Soccer videos from the World Cup or look at her twitter/facebook she has developed a very close relationship with Ali Krieger. There is a lot of speculation whether Ali is gay or bi but it seems highly suspect. For instance, on Lori Lindsey's twitter account, the picture is of Lori and her gf as well as Megan and Ali celebrating NYE in Vegas. Nothing official but a lot of signs point to that.

  3. Just saying..

    maybe they are all just really close... just becuase you have a really close girl-friend doesnt make you gay.

    who cares? megan rapinoe has elevated the game with her flair and style of football inthis past women's world cup, and along with abby wambach has turned this fan of the men's aspect of the game into a bonafide fan of the women's game as well. Her sexual orientation really does not matter to me- i think she's great and if she ever reads this i hope it inspires her to continue to give 100%, because she has raised the bar on excellence and determination, and also maybe she'll send an e-mail...i really would put an autographed poster alongside the male counterpart posters-she belongs!!

    I think everyone should admire their game and skills rather than their orientation, judge them for the work they put out on the field not on who they are dating. It annoys me when people would rather dig and get into their personal lives than to just admire the things they open up for you too see (i.e. Their game).

  17. Morgan

    Megan and Abby would be a cute coupe thinking about it.. She's a very beautiful person inside and out. I'm 14 and when i make that US WNT im going to marry her.

    Ali Krieger was in a long term realtionship with a man which ended a few months ago.
    Alex Morgan has been in a 4 year realtionship with her college sweetheart.
    Hope Solo is single but is not a lesbian.
    Megan Rapinoe is openly gay but an AMAZING soccer player.
    All of these people that get caught up in there personal lives of the 21 women sometimes forget the fact that they are Fantastic soccer players. Some people should stop the marriage proposals and start the goal bets.

    I hate it when I look up megan rapinoe or abby wambach the 3rd or 4th option 2 click on is megan rapinoe gay or abby wambach lesbian...who cares its their life let them live it

  20. C'mon Amy

    Don't you mean "Megan Rapinoe is openly gay AND an AMAZING soccer player."? What's with the "but"? Ouch.

  21. Kate

    Whether or not she's gay, she didn't 'come out publicly' in THAT article, though. She said she's fine with appealing to the gay community and that she believes it's good for the sport if it appeals to a diverse audience--neither of which amounts to her saying, "I am gay." (Sorry, I have a pet peeve about reading more into things than is actually there.)

    Anyway, I think everybody here gets that her orientation has no bearing on her game and doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, but this site is at least partly *about* speculating, so for the small scheme of my daydreams ima go ahead and speculate that she is gay, because that works for me. Either way, she's hella hot!

    I want to thank you for representating the USA (which I love) in a very wonderful positive way. I am a 68 year old white male and just wated to relay that by far the opinion that most people of my generation could care less abou your personal sexual orientation. We base oour views on your personal character and as far as I am concerned, you are one of our countrys wonderful role models for our future leaders . You are red, white and blue as far as I am concerned.

    I just love that rack!

  28. Valter

    Look, I'm in the same class as Megan's cousin, he has said that Megan is not lesbian and has had many boyfriends. Whatever allegations against Megan are false and she is as straight as a ruler.
