Erin Jackson just became the first black woman to become the first Olympic speedskating gold medalist. Just like the information on Erin’s parents, people asked questions related to her gender and her sexuality. Rumors surfaced on the internet after her win that she was in a lesbian relationship.
We address it all in this article. So, keep on reading to know more about those topics.
Erin Jackson Gender
By gender, Erin Jackson is a female. A lot of her closest friends and family have referred to her as a daughter. Like, in July 2016 a friend of Erin wrote on her Facebook, “Erin Jackson, my daughter from another mother, got Olympic Committee Skater of the year! I got another award in my house for you baby.”
Another friend of Erin wrote on her Facebook, “Happy happy birthday to my skate daughter Erin Jackson! You are such an inspiration to so many people and I am so proud of the woman you have become. I’ve watched you grow up, face adversity, and always take the high road. Intelligent, humble, beautiful inside and out, and just a great all-around person. Don’t ever change! Love you loads!!!! Looking forward to many more great times together and watching you excel on the ice-ice baybee – Miss Olympian!”
Likewise, when Erin lost her mother, a friend came to pay tribute where she wrote, “Dear Erin love, We are so sorry for the loss of mama Jackson, miss Rita was a great lady, one of a kind and raised a smart, beautiful, kinda, loving and most of all strong daughter please know if there is anything that we can ever do for you, that we are here, do not hesitate. Much love and prayers go out to you and your dad. Stay strong Erin, love you girl”.
So, despite the rumors and questions arising\, we believe there should be no confusion about Erin’s gender.
Is Erin Jackson Lesbian?
No, Erin Jackson doesn’t seem to be lesbian or at least hasn’t come out publicly as a lesbian. But, we could understand why people would believe so. She had teamed up fellow LGBTQ speed-skater named Brittany Bowe. They have known each other for a long time when Brittany was 10 years old.
Brittany had given up her Olympic spot in the 500 meters to Erin in 2022. So, some might’ve mistaken their friendship and deep bond as being in a relationship. But, jumping to the conclusion that they maintain such type of relationship is a mistake unless they exclusively confirm.
But, you should know that Brittany is in a relationship with her partner already named Karlijn Sophie. Her partner has been featured a few times on her IG.
Furthermore, Erin is very private about her relationship status. Not a single post suggested that she has or was in a lesbian relationship ever. Instead, she had featured a few boys on her IG who could be the guys she dated in the past.
On Facebook, Erin had also referred to a Facebook friend as her “boyfriend“, twice. But, it didn’t suggest that she was in a relationship with the man.
