    Is Regina George Lesbian? Actor Reneé Rapp Responds To ‘Mean Girls’ Fan Theories About The Character’s Sexuality

    The ‘Mean Girls’ is back in the glory it has always held since the 2004 high-school teen drama was released. It became a career highlight for Rachel McAdams as she played the popular girl Regina George in the film. Tinna Fey, who played Ms. Norbury, adapted the film into a Broadway musical that stars Reneé Rapp.

    The Broadway musical has now manifested into a full-fledged celluloid adaptation. In the 2004 ‘Mean Girls,’ there is a scene where Regina George does not allow Janis Ian to a party as she mistakes her for a lesbian. Now, as Reneé Rapp takes over the role of Regina George, she wants the character to be highly queer. The evidence is clear through her Instagram posts and her song with Megan Thee Stallion. Now, during an interview, she has addressed the theories about Regina being a lesbian.

Also, Damian Hubbard is another gay character in the musical. During the press tours of the ‘Mean Girls’ musical, Renée has convinced the audience that Regina George is that closeted mean girl.

    The actress added, “This is also a cast of so many gays, hello? If you’re putting really sick gay and queer people into a cast, it’s inherently going to be gay and very cool, which I think is really exciting.”
