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.
