During the podcast, Gunning discussed the issue of self-love that was discussed in the program, and then she went on to discuss her personal experiences with the subject matter. “Are you experiencing a sense of stepping into yourself in new ways for the first time?” Smith inquired about it.

“Well, a significant event occurred to me, and maybe I’ll just speak about it for a moment. Gunning said, “I actually came out in November of 22,” as Smith extended a warm welcome to her arrival at the club. 

You are very much appreciated. I am grateful to you. “And that was a mega, mega thing for me because I’ve been surrounded by gays for such a long time,” she remarked. Similar to how all of my buddies are homosexual. In other words, it wasn’t that I was trying to hide something from myself. It’s just that I didn’t believe I was capable of being, and I still don’t know how to talk about it most effectively.

After a short period, the English actress stated that her emotions had become too powerful to be denied. 

However, I came to the realization that I was a big old homosexual. My reaction was, “That’s exactly how it’s been.” According to her, such is the situation.

Gunning continued by saying, “And that was like a massive moment where everything kind of clicked.” It was then that I really understood myself because, for such a long time, I had assumed — because I am a larger woman — that maybe it had something to do with the fact that I am a larger woman. However, I had the impression that I was following along or that I was a little bit alien. The fact that she alluded to her coming out as “the most liberating thing” brought to mind a moment from the show that struck a chord with her.
