Sophia Bush Grateful After Coming Out as Queer: 'Courage Inspires'

Love and Courage

Sophia Bush, known from "Chicago P.D.," has come out as queer and announced her relationship with ex-USWNT star Ashlyn Harris. In an Instagram post, the 41-year-old actress shared a video from her Glamour magazine shoot and expressed gratitude for her fans' support and shared stories. She wrote, "Ever-evolving still weird. Thank you for the kindness, vulnerability, and the stories and journeys of your own so many of you have shared. Courage is contagious. Here’s to a life in progress."

The announcement was met with an outpouring of affection and support from fans, friends, and celebrities alike. Comments flooded in, including heartwarming words from her “Drama Queens” podcast cohost and former "One Tree Hill" co-star, Hilarie Burton Morgan, who wrote, "Love you love you love you." Harris herself responded, stating, "You’re perfect," further highlighting the supportive dynamic of their relationship.

In her self-penned cover story for Glamour, published just a day before her Instagram post, Bush delved deeper into her personal journey of self-discovery. "As I came into myself, I already felt it was my home. I think I’ve always known that my sexuality exists on a spectrum," she wrote. Reflecting on her identity, she shared, "Right now I think the word that best defines it is queer. I can’t say it without smiling, actually. And that feels pretty great."

Bush discussed the difficulties she encountered during a personal period, including her brief marriage to Grant Hughes ending and her new relationship with Harris. She denied allegations of infidelity and maintained her integrity, clarifying that her partners have always known about her sexual orientation. She highlighted that her decision to come out was thoughtful and not made lightly.

Highlighting the unwavering support she received, Bush shared a poignant anecdote about her mother's reaction to skeptical remarks from a friend. When confronted with disbelief about her daughter's orientation, her mother responded assertively, "Oh honey, I think she's pretty gay. And she’s happy." This statement not only underscored the acceptance and love from her family but also served as a powerful reminder of the importance of embracing one's true self.
