‘The Girl from Plainville‘ is based on the tragic case of Conrad Roy III’s suicide and the role played by Michelle Carter, his lover at the time. The drama, which is based on the “texting-suicide case,” digs into the circumstances leading up to the tragedy as well as the distinct personal lives of the central youngsters.
Michelle and Conrad both appear to be lonely, and while Conrad suffers from melancholy, Michelle suffers from social anxiety. This adds to the intrigue of her friendships (apart from her relationship with Conrad).
Michelle Carter’s sexual orientation has been questioned, as has the possibility that she had a partner at one point. Michelle’s haircut has also been the subject of several stories, and in ‘The Girl from Plainville,’ she loses a friend who believes Michelle is obsessed with her. Here’s everything we know about Michelle Carter’s lesbian status.

Michelle Carter: Is She a Lesbian?
Michelle’s love with ‘Glee‘ lead actress Lea Michele, as well as her on-screen and off-screen romance with Cory Monteith, was one of the many clues that were alluded to while discussing Michelle possibly being a lesbian.
Michelle alluded to the actress as her “woman crush Wednesday” on many times on social media, as featured in the Hulu drama. However, because ‘Glee’ has a large fan base and Michelle was a teenager at the time of the posts, this aspect alone cannot be considered as a signal.
Michelle has another buddy called Alice Felzmann, whom she met in 2012 while playing softball on a travel team. They grew close and had regular night stays once or twice a week. However, Alice stopped reacting to Michelle at some point, and their friendship terminated as a result. In fact, this feature is emphasised in ‘The Girl from Plainville,’ with Susie’s character appearing to be based on Alice.
Susie breaks up with Michelle after saying that she is fascinated with her on the television. In actuality, while Michelle’s close connection with Alice could be interpreted as anything more, there is insufficient evidence to make a judgement on the former’s sexual orientation.
Michelle Carter: Did She Have a Girlfriend?
Although it is unknown whether Michelle is a lesbian or not, it indicates that she had feelings for Alice. Michelle talked about Alice in text messages to another friend that were later discovered, adding, “I’m obsessed with her like idk how to quit.” It’s her I think about in every love song or anything.” “I thought it was a phase at first, like I thought we were just extremely good friends,” another message wrote.
But we started chatting like we were in a relationship, flirting and all that. I’m not sure if I’m bisexual. I believe it’s because I’ve never had a relationship like that with another girl before.”
When Alice’s mother became aware of her daughter’s frequent communication with Michelle, she put a stop to it, and Alice eventually agreed. A year later, Alice received an envelope with what appeared to be a handwritten “love note” from Michelle. Michelle later spoke romantically about Alice, claiming to have shared “her first kiss” with her. Alice and her mother, on the other hand, have said that Alice and Michelle’s relationship was never physical.
Christine Monahan, who had played soccer with Michelle, also alleged that Michelle was “infatuated” with her. “I always thought she loved me lot more than I loved her,” Christine stated about Michelle.
Finally, it’s possible that saying Michelle had a romantic relationship with either Alice or Christine isn’t entirely correct. However, it appears that Michelle had affections for some of her female friends, and that at least one of them, Alice, thought they had a love connection.
