- A butch lesbian and a gay drag queen are head over heals in love with each other
- Their unconventional relationship has people questioning their orientation
- The two are happy together and do not care what other people think
A Cape Flats couple is changing the way South Africans look at relationships with their unconventional union. Robyn-Lee Smith, 26, is a butch lesbian who has fallen for Rubee Lee Lucas, 22, a gay drag queen.
They have been a couple for over a year but still, find that their relationship challenged by people within the LGBTI community.
Despite Rubee preferring men and Robyn having a preference for women, the two are happy together. Due to the unconventional nature of their relationship people have begun to question their preferences claiming that they are straight.
“People are now telling me that I am in fact straight and not gay because I am involved with a woman. But we are still part of the Rainbow (the LGBTI community) because we can’t just be classified as straight when we have been dating our same-gender partners for all of our lives,” says Rubee.
Rubee says that she has known Robin for nearly 10 years and smaaked her masculine physique and Robyn finds Rubee has a feminine beauty.
For Robyn the only challenge she finds in the actual relationship is the fact that Rubee is technically a man, she has only ever been with women before.
The two have discussed having children but at this point, Robyn is not interested in being a mom. The couple live with Rubee's grandmother who supports their relationship.
