In case you're unfamiliar, Stephanie Beatriz is the actress who plays Detective Rosa Diaz on FOX's Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Gaby Dunn is a popular bisexual Youtuber and podcaster known for her comedy skits on her channel, Just Between Us, and her podcast, Bad With Money. She is also pretty well-known for publicly resigning from doing comedy for Buzzfeed back in 2015 before she started the Just Between Us show.
Last June, Stephanie Beatriz came out as bisexual on Twitter with a couple of tweets in response to Aubrey Plaza doing the same thing.
The same day she also indicated a preference for quirky blondes:
Probably gonna marry Kate McKinnon so everyone else can just go home ok? Thanks. #Ghostbusters— Stephanie Beatriz (@iamstephbeatz) July 16, 2016
As you will know if you've ever watched Gaby Dunn do anything, she is Quirky (like it's her whole brand) and blonde.
Not long after Stephanie came out, she and Gaby started exchanging tweets:
In August 2016:
😂😂😂— Stephanie Beatriz (@iamstephbeatz) August 14, 2016
And in October:
YES HUNTY 3RD ROW I MAY DIE— Stephanie Beatriz (@iamstephbeatz) October 2, 2016
In October, Gaby appeared on Stephanie's weekly Youtube show, Reality Bytes, to discuss polyamory and dating while bisexual. It's super long but the astute viewer will note that she made Stephanie giggle and touch her hair a lot.
A month after that, Stephanie appeared on Gaby's podcast and the description for the episode calls Stephanie "surreal and inspiring."
Around the same time this was developing, Gaby talked publicly about her breakup from her boyfriend and noted that Stephanie (along with some other friends) helped to get her through it.
Things seemed to be developing further this spring when they started tweeting each other hearts:

Then this summer, they went to LA Pride Festival together:
And Gaby came with Stephanie on the red carpet for her show Danger & Eggs. Both looked incredibly gay.
Throughout all this time, Stephanie has been getting more involved in the LGBT community, posting photos of herself for #LGBTbabes and apparently befriending queer women celebrities (and members of Gaby's circle) like Gabby Rivera and Cameron Esposito. She also has been retweeting articles about Gaby's various professional milestones and successes.

Which brings us up to present day! To recap: they tweet at each other all the time (sometimes with hearts), have attended events together and make one another twirl their hair. I wish them happiness in their speculated life together.
How'd I do at my first ONTD original?
