Jennifer English’s sexuality

Voice actor Jennifer English is a queer woman. During a 2023 interview with Gayming Magazine, she revealed what growing up was like for her regarding her sexuality:

Growing up, I experienced a lot of internalized homophobia, which felt pretty universal. So there was no outlet for me. But now, being queer is one of my favourite parts of me. Since I came out at 21, I have had nothing but love and acceptance from my family, and I know I am in a place of total privilege with that.  I am proud to be a part of the LGBTQ community.
