When Taylor Taylor Swift came out as transgender, the world knew she was the next big thing.
Since then, she’s been in over 50 movies and music videos, been voted the best singer of all time, and made waves for the first time in her career as the first transgender celebrity to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
But the songwriter has never officially come out, so how did the world know about her?
In honor of the occasion, here’s our guide to everything we know about the Swift-led queer love story.
What we know: Taylor Swift has said that she was diagnosed with gender dysphoria in 2013, after a failed attempt to have sex reassignment surgery.
She’s also said that her gender identity is fluid, and that she’s “not trying to hide” her gender identities, but she has stated that she wants to be known as a “transgender person” in public.
What you need to know: Swift, who is gay, was diagnosed in 2014 with gender identity disorder (GID), a condition that can result in depression, self-harm, and suicidal ideation.
She has also been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, and multiple substance abuse issues.
Swift’s mother, Tippi Longworth, told the Hollywood Reporter that Swift was “under the influence” at the time of her diagnosis, and told PEOPLE magazine that the singer “just doesn’t have the energy” to talk about her feelings about her diagnosis.
In 2015, Swift told GQ Magazine that she felt she “had to tell people” and she was “very embarrassed” by how much she had been talking about her depression, so she was afraid to tell her fans.
She later told PEOPLE Magazine that the depression came from the fact that she had “never been able to get my life together.”
She added that she “wasn’t allowed to talk to people.”
In 2016, Swift and her longtime boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, made their long-awaited announcement that they were together.
Swift told PEOPLE that she and Timberlake have been together for over 10 years and that they are “completely in love.”
But she later told Glamour magazine that she has been feeling suicidal.
She was hospitalized in 2018 after an apparent suicide attempt, and has said publicly that she is not suicidal, but that she feels “like a shell of who I was” at times.
What she said: Swift told People magazine that her depression “was a very big part of it” but that “being the last person to say that was the hardest part of my life.”
She said that while she has “never felt like this before,” she has always wanted to be open about her struggles, and she believes that she can share those struggles with the world.
“I don’t think there’s a way to be who you want to be, and I don’t want to give people that,” she said.
“It’s something that I feel like I have to do.”
What you should know: She is bisexual, but Swift is not married.
She previously told PEOPLE in a 2016 interview that she did not consider her marriage “the best way” to be treated in the gay community, but admitted that “I have a lot of friends who are gay, and some who are not, and there are a lot more people in the closet.”
She has been vocal about her relationship with Justin Timberham and the gay rights movement.
In 2018, Swift released her album, 1989, which is the first album to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song.
It received a score of 92 percent on the Rotten Tomatoes music review site.
In 2019, Swift won the Academy Award in Best Original Song for “1989.”
Swift has previously described the song as “beautiful” and “soul-warming,” and she has also said she “tried to write something about myself” for the album.
What’s next: Swift is in the middle of a world tour, and we don’t know if she will come out as gay or bisexual in the coming months.
The singer recently tweeted that she may not come out until at least November 2019.
