Courtney Act says she is dating a guy she met at Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black’s New Year’s Eve party.

The RuPaul’s Drag Race S6 finalist shared details of the party in an interview with GSN this week – while adding that he also accompanied her to Tom and Dustin’s recent baby shower.

‘The New Year’s Eve party was fun – Alaska and I went,’ the Celebrity Big Brother winner said. ‘I met a boy there who I’m currently dating, which is lovely. We just went to their house on Saturday to the baby shower!’

‘There were vegan treats’

Describing what kind of food the Olympic diver and the Oscar-winning Milk screenwriter served, Courtney said: ‘There were vegan treats, because they’re vegan as well.’

She furthermore added: ‘At their New Year’s Eve party, I couldn’t even speculate what time, I remember Lance cooking vegan chicken nuggets for a group of us huddled around the kitchen…’

Courtney has revealed in the past that she identifies as pansexual, polyamorous and genderfluid.

The star furthermore said she has Grindr, Tinder and Feeld profiles. ‘You would see me – a very clear, unmistakable headshot, no wig’ she says of her profile pictures. ‘And in my profiles I do say I do drag. I don’t say “CBB winner Courtney Act…”‘

She continued: ‘Maybe I’ve changed. Maybe the times have changed. But being really upfront about my identity can only lead to a more authentic experience. If someone’s going to be put off by me doing drag, I ain’t got time for that. I’m a busy woman!’

Courtney’s new show Under the Sheets tours the UK this May and June.
