The London-born actress, whose awards cabinet boasts a Tony, Grammy and an Emmy revealed her bisexuality as part of British Vogue's August Pride issue. Previously, she had shared that she was queer, and talking to writer Jacqueline Woodson, Cynthia explained why now was the right time for her to be open. "I could feel myself actively hiding that part of myself and it didn’t feel good. That takes a lot of energy to uphold and there is zero return.” “I felt like I was looking at my community be alive and vibrant from inside a glass box."
