Author and cultural commentator Roxane Gay and her girlfriend, writer and artist Debbie Millman, are engaged.
“I met a girl who loves to write and is really into Beyoncé,” Millman writes over the course of a carousel of photos on her Instagram page. “We went on some dates; we fell in love. And now she is my fiancé.”
Gay is the author of Bad Feminist, Hunger, Difficult Women, World of Wakanda, and Not That Bad. She is also a professor, a columnist for The New York Times, and a force on Twitter. Millman is an author, educator, curator, and host of the podcast Design Matters, according to her website’s bio. She also cofounded the world’s first graduate program in branding at the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 2009.
On Twitter, Gay thanked her followers for their support in response to the news about her engagement.
