“My mom was a model and then became a makeup artist, so I pretty much grew up on set. I modeled for most of my childhood, but I was incredibly shy. Like, couldn’t speak in public kind of shy. So, of course I ended up an actor. That’s how it goes, right?”Diora Baird

“I actually attempted to date a woman when I was 22, but … it fizzled pretty fast. Shortly after, I found myself on the cover of the biggest men’s magazine in the world. I went on to spend the next decade performing for men in every aspect of my life. I had succumbed to the notion that this was just the way it was.”Diora Baird

“After years in therapy trying to get to the root of my intimacy issues and my negative sex drive, I figured I must just be asexual. The fact that I no longer drank alcohol made the proclivity of dating men virtually impossible. Instead, I spent my nights binge-watching The L Word and every lesbian film I could find, before ultimately braving the lesbian scene and going out to a gay bar. I’m sure I knew deep down inside that I was going to love women, and that terrified me. The first question I was asked was ‘Are you gay? Straight? Bi?’ I didn’t have an answer. I was not prepared to give myself a label. I was asked about my sexual orientation constantly and began to resent this whole need for a label. ‘Is it me that requires a label to know myself or is it you that needs a label as a way of putting me in a box?'”Diora Baird

“It took me years to accept who I truly was. I tried to be what was expected of me, but I have reached the point where I don’t want to hide anymore. In all my relationships with men, I knew something was missing and I finally figured out what that something is … I am meant to be in a relationship with a woman.”Diora Baird
