Rose McGowan’s gender-bending lover | Innovation Tech
ROSE McGOWAN’s personal life is looking up, less than a year after she bravely called out Harvey Weinstein and became one of the driving forces behind the #MeToo movement.
The actress is dating Rain Dove, 28, who has been creating headlines as the world’s most famous non-binary gender model.
McGowan, 44, has been pictured in a number of romantic moments with Rain, who prefers to be referred to as “they” rather than she or he — but no one knew who the mystery date was until now.
They’re certainly a very modern couple, with McGowan also preferring not to label herself as a man or a woman.
They attended the Ozy Fest in New York last weekend, where they were seen strolling Central park and kissing, but online reports wrongly said McGowan was with a man.
The Charmed star was previously involved with music producer Boots and other famous exes include Marilyn Manson, Ryan Phillippe and Matthew Lillard.
McGowan — one of Weinstein’s most vocal accusers — was among the first to point the finger at him in bombshell tweets in October following a newspaper exposé.
McGowan has also been an LGBT rights activist and came out as non-binary in March, saying: “I don’t wanna be a man or a woman. That’s the thing, I’m not.”
Former firefighter Rain began modelling as a bet with pals but went on to enjoy serious success in the industry.
The formidable 6 foot 2 inch activist Rain models in both men’s and women’s clothing and claims gender doesn’t exist — it is “a social construct you don’t have to fit into” — but doesn’t correct people when mistaken for a man.
Rain said: “I used my gender-bending profile as something that had gotten me a bunch of odd jobs from nannying to landscape.”
As a couple, they’ll certainly have no shortage of interesting conversation.
