Cara and Ashley recently confirmed their relationship on Instagram, where Cara shared a video clip of the couple kissing. At the event, Cara opened up about why they decided to go public, revealing that the pair recently celebrated their one-year anniversary.
When asked why they decided to go public, Cara said:
“I don’t know because it is Pride, it’s been 50 years since Stonewall happened and I don’t know, it’s been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?”
During her speech during the gala, Cara also gave a shout-out to Ashley, saying:
“I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are. She’s one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought.”
