Niecy Nash and Jessica Betts have a love that doesn’t only conquer it all but also breaks the barriers. They are the first LGBTQ couple who graced the cover of Essence magazine’s March/April 2022 Black Women in Hollywood issue. The two share a sweet embrace in the snap, with the title A Love Like This.

As expected, many give the couple credit for showing their love in public. For starters, Nash and the American singer first connected on social media in 2015. At the time, Nash was still married to Jay Tucker. However, they later announced their separation in a joint statement in 2019, giving a chance to the American actress and Betts’ love. They then tied the knot in 2020, and for Nash, it was “a going into herself” instead of “coming out.” We’re glad that these two found each other and are going strong.
