Aubrey Plaza has revealed in a new interview with The Advocate that she’s bisexual.

“I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there’s something masculine about my energy,” she told the publication. “Girls are into me — that’s no secret. Hey, I’m into them too. I fall in love with girls and guys.” She added, “Even though I have my own insecurities … I’ve always had this mission of disrupting social norms.”

The 32-year-old actress explained that she identified as an older gay man when she was growing up. “I think that’s truly who I really am,” she said. “Like, I grew up obsessed with Judy Garland, and I was also obsessed with how much she meant to her following.”

Of her family’s support, Plaza said, “[They’ve] always been very open. I have a gay aunt and a gay uncle. My younger sister is a lesbian, so it’s just in my blood, I guess. She came out to me when she was 17 or 18, and for, like, a millisecond I was surprised. Then I replayed our entire life in my mind, and I was like, ‘Of course! Of course I know that!’”
