Amber Heard walks the GLAAD red carpet with lesbian partner

December 7, 2010 - Melbourne

'The Informers' star Amber Heard has officially revealed that she's a lesbian.

As per the reports, the blonde beauty proudly walked the red carpet with her partner Tasya van Ree at the GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) 25th anniversary bash in Hollywood.

Amber, who is Johnny Depp's leading lady in his upcoming 'The Rum Diary' explained to website AfterEllen why she chose to come out, and do it at the GLAAD event.

She said she had to ask herself if by being closeted, she was part of the problem in denying 'millions of hard-working, tax paying Americans' their rights.

"I think GLAAD is one of the many reasons that I, as a 24-year-old, can come out," the Daily Telegraph quoted her as telling the website.

Van Ree is a photographer and artist. She and Heard have quietly been together since 2008 but the GLAAD celebration was their formal coming out as a couple.

"She is beautiful. I mean, you'd have to be crazy not to want to go out with her," Heard concluded of Van Ree's praise.
