American singer-songwriter and comic book writer Gerard Way has been married to his wife Lyn-Z, aka Lindsey Way, a bassist of Mindless Self Indulgence, since 3 September 2007.

Since then, the couple, despite managing a private personal life, occasionally takes to their social media to express their love for each other.

To give an instance, Gerard beautifully wished her a happy birthday in May 2019, saying she brought love and light into their lives.

“I’m sick today and she is taking care of me, on her birthday! I can’t begin to count all the reasons you are the most special person I know. I am so very much in love with you,” he added in his Instagram post.

And now, Way cannot be found on social media—he has even deleted all of his Instagram posts.

But his massive fanbase is hoping that the Summit native returns to social media to keep them updated about his upcoming projects and personal life.

Is Gerard Way Gay?

For ages, fans have been speculating if Gerard Way is bisexual given the popularity of his and his former band, My Chemical Romance, among LGBTIQ+ fans for some of the songs with queer elements (such as 'Not That Kind of Girl' and 'Bisexual').

If you didn't know, Way is also known for cross-dressing and using makeup whenever he is expressing himself through his songs, comics, illustrations, or appearances.

In October  2022, he dressed up in a cheerleader outfit on the occasion of National Coming Out Day during a reunion tour event with  MCR and greeted the audience by hoisting a flamethrower. 

He was also been spotted kissing fellow band member and lead guitarist Ray Toro during their tour at the Eden Project

However, Way, a vocal LGBTIQ+ supporter, doesn't identify as bisexual. Rather, he identifies as queer, as reported by SDLGBTN in 2020. 

“I’ve never felt like there was an umbrella term that fit me,” he shared. "I’ve always just kind of felt like I’m an individual. And ‘queer’ just feels like, you know, it covers a lot of territory. It just feels like the right fit."

Gerard Way and His Wife Met during a Musical Tour

According to People, Gerard and his wife, Lindsey, met and bloomed their romance when they were touring with the singer’s rock band My Chemical Romance as part of Linkin Park’s Projekt Revolution festival.

The singer also credited Linkin Park’s late musician Chester Bennington for bringing him close to his now-wife during the conversation with the mentioned tabloid.

“His band and bringing us on tour, that changed my life. I met my wife. We have an amazing life now and a daughter. My memories of that period and meeting Linds again are tied into Chester and his band,” he stated.

In a 2008 interview with Rolling Stone, the late Bennington also reflected on his role in bringing Gerard and Lindsey together.

He said that he felt proud that the couple “reignited their friendship” during the musical tour and eventually ended up getting married to each other.

“I was like, ‘This is freaking awesome,’” he added.
