A Brief But Incredibly Gay Timeline of Reneé Rapp and Towa Bird’s Relationship

“ARE THEY DATING,” one user wrote under a TikTok of the two of them performing live.

In a February interview with Them about her forthcoming album American Hero, Bird says that she has an “incredibly close” relationship with Rapp.

“We would hang out backstage, and then go and do our sets, and then come back and hang out together again,” Bird says. “She really cares about her craft and really cares about her audience and puts in the hours and the work. I’ve always felt like a pretty hard worker, and I really give a shit. To see someone at her level give a shit as much as I do — it’s totally inspiring to be around.”

Just a few days after Bird’s interview with Them published, Rapp told The Hollywood Reporter two important pieces of information: she’s a lesbian and she’s recently been in a relationship.

“I’ve only recently started referring to myself as a lesbian, and I’ve only recently been in a relationship where I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m a lesbian for sure,’” Rapp says.

While we don’t know if that’s a direct nod to Bird, the timing is impeccable.
