Reneé Rapp and Towa Bird Hard Launched Their Relationship at the ‘Vanity Fair’ Oscars Party

Today in major celesbian news: Reneé Rapp and Towa Bird have seemingly hard-launched their relationship.

On Sunday, March 10, the lesbian musicians hit the red carpet together at Vanity Fair’s Oscars afterparty. But according to a TikTok shared by the outlet, this wasn’t just any carpet appearance.

“Reneé Rapp and Towa Bird make their red carpet debut as a couple,” Vanity Fair’s caption reads. In the video, Bird sports an embroidered denim suit and wraps an arm around Rapp’s waist as she poses in a floor-length white gown.

This couple debut comes after weeks of fan speculation that the singer-songwriters had started dating after Bird opened for Rapp during her “Snow Hard Feelings” tour, which just wrapped up in Dublin, Ireland on March 4.

“I’m screaming omg hard launch????” one fan wrote.

“Oh we knew but now we KNOWWWWW,” another commented.

Although neither star has officially confirmed their relationship on their own social media, Rapp alluded to having a new partner in a February 28 interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

“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,’” she said. “[…] I’m watching all these movies and parts of gay culture, specifically lesbian culture, and I’m like, ‘I love this.’ It’s also been the most rewarding, validating, scary and exciting experience ever.”

Earlier this year, the Mean Girls star shared that she now identifies as a lesbian rather than as bisexual (as she once did), after a Saturday Night Live sketch that she appeared in on January 20 casually referred to her as a “little lesbian intern.”

Rapp is certainly no stranger to playing queer roles on-screen. After rising to mainstream stardom playing preppy lesbian Leighton on Max’s The Sex Lives of College Girls, she told Them that she played iconic queen bee Regina George as queer in the new Mean Girls musical film.

“To me [and my friends], that was always a conversation around the [original Mean Girls] film: ‘Oh, [Regina is] like… This is coming from a queer place. Come on now,’” Rapp said. “That was always my interpretation of it. It might not be other people’s, and I truly don’t care. It’s mine, and that’s how I feel.”
