OITNB’s Lea DeLaria has spoken about the time she got arrested for ‘being gay’
Orange is the New Black star Lea DeLaria has spoken about a time that she “got arrested for being gay” in Missouri.
The comedian and actor talked about her sexuality with Huffington Post in their video segment, four inappropriate questions.
DeLaria recounted a time that she was arrested for “open homosexuality”.
Although she didn’t mention when it happened, she explained that she was caught making out with a girl next to a lake.
“We were so busted. I spent the night in jail and they separated us too because they were afraid we were gonna f*ck in the jail I guess,” she quipped.
The star also spoke about realising she was a lesbian and having sex for the first time with another woman.
She explained that she didn’t like sex because she had first had it with a man.
“The first time I had sex I thought it was gross because it wasn’t lesbian sex.
“I didn’t like it at all but the first time I had lesbian sex I was like OH MY GOD.
“I remember the girl was f*cking said to me ‘oh my god I feel like a virgin again’,” she added.
DeLaria, who is an icon for LGBT across the world, added that she only realised she was a “butch dyke” during her first job in a dyke bar.
“There was this old dyke sitting there and she turned round and yelled hey baby butch. I went ‘oh, I guess I’m a butch dyke’.”

The star also spoke about dealing with homophobes.
“I don’t get hurt, I am filled with rage. So if somebody says something stupid about my sexuality I will get rageful about it,” she said.
The announcement was made in a truly bizarre DeLaria form as the couple shared a photo showing them stood with Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor, while DeLaria is dressed as David Gest and Fairless is dressed as Liza Minelli.
