While Megan announced she was a lesbian in Out way back in 2012, Sue came out of the closet only when she and Megan went public as a couple.
A couple of years ago Sue explained to the Seattle Times: ‘I think a lot of people who were like me at the time felt: “Yes, I was living my life, but I don’t have to come out publicly.” You kinda say, “Well, straight people don’t have to come out.” I understand now that’s not necessarily the right way to look at it.’
She revealed to the newspaper: ‘Megan and I would have conversations about it, and she opened my eyes to another way of looking at it, which is that in today’s time, in today’s society, it’s still important to kind of say it to make it the norm.’
Sue also described Megan as ‘very attentive’ as well as ‘very selfless in the relationship’ and ‘very willing to give of yourself.’
Between the two of them, the duo have a total of five Olympic gold medals – four for Sue and one for Megan.
