June 29 (UPI) -- Orange is the New Black alum Taylor Schilling is coming out as a member of the LGBTQ community.
The 35-year-old actress confirmed Sunday on Instagram Stories that she's dating musician and visual artist Emily Ritz.
Schilling re-posted a photo that Ritz shared on Instagram Stories that shows the couple embracing on a hike.
"I couldn't be more proud to be by your side @taylorschilling. Happy Pride!" Ritz captioned the post, adding a rainbow and heart emojis.
Schilling later paid tribute to Black transgender activist Marsha P. Johnson on Instagram.
"Here because of women like you. Happy Pride my friends #happypride #marshapjohnson #blacklivesmatter #blacktranslivesmatter #loveislove," she wrote.
Just Jared said Schilling and Ritz met through mutual friends and developed a romance in late 2019.
Schilling played Piper Chapman on Orange is the New Black, which ended in July 2019 after seven seasons on Netflix. Her former co-star Laverne Cox discussed race and LGBTQ issues on Watch What Happens Live last week.
