Hermansen is an English professor and together they and Lambert host a podcast called The Manic Episodes where they discuss living with bipolar disorder.
Raised in the Pentecostal church, Lambert is a Christian and is planning on getting married in a church.
In “Same Love,” she repeats the line “Not crying on Sundays,” a reference to how she has come to accept herself as a gay Christian.
“It was in a positive aspect,” she told the Seattle Times. “It was me saying, ‘I am a gay Christian. I am comfortable.’ I don’t feel like it’s bashing anyone.”
She also sang the line “Love is patient, love is kind” in the song, which is from First Corinthians 13:4.
