Jill Soloway, the creator of "Transparent", which we talked about yesterday on the occasion of the Golden Globes nominations, announced she is in a relationship with a woman, the poet Eileen Myles.

She talked about her lover who inspired a character in "Transparent" season 2 during an interview with the New Yorker.

"We had pretty much an instant connection," Soloway told the New Yorker.

"I open it [Myle's journal] up, and the first thing it says is "Whoever falls in love with me is in trouble,"" she said. "It was like she wrote to me without even knowing that I existed."

Also, you will discover, during this new season, a professor who falls in love with a woman, this professor is directly inspired by Myles. This is not the first time Soloway is based on her personal life as the main character of "Transparent" is also inspired one of her parents.
