In an interview with Columbia College, where she received her degree in 2006, Katie revealed that she had been gay since her freshman year of high school. But at the time, nobody from her school was present.

She told her parents in private when she was 15 years old. She held off telling her sister and her classmates for three years. I didn’t want anybody bothering her, she said. Naturally, Emily has no problem with Kate’s sexiness. Even though she is not gay, Emily adopted this as her cause, Kate said.
