So, Who is Taylor Schilling’s Girlfriend, Emily Ritz?

According to Just Jared, Schilling and Ritz is a visual artist and musician. She and Schilling reportedly met through mutual friends before pursuing a romantic relationship late last year.

Schilling has been very quiet about her private life in the past, telling Evening Standard in 2017, “I think it’s pretty invasive. I’ve had very serious relationships with lots of people, and I’m a very expansive human. There’s no part of me that can be put under a label,” after speculation that she was in a relationship with Portlandia actress and musician Carrie Brownstein.

While we imagine the couple will return to private mode, we wish them congratulations nonetheless. Oh, and happy Pride, y’all.
