Looking good, ladies! Robin Roberts and her longtime girlfriend Amber Laign made a rare public appearance together on Monday, May 19. 

The pair stepped out in New York City, attending the 11th annual Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network's Respect Awards at Gotham Hall. The event recognizes efforts made to make schools a safer environment for students of all sexualities.

Roberts, 53, attended the event to present the Gay-Straight Alliance of the Year award. She wore a chic black overall-inspired jumpsuit over a white collared shirt and black-and-white T-strap heels. 

Laign, a massage therapist, wore a black V-neck top belted with a navy, royal blue, and white geometric floor-length skirt. She posed with Roberts, with their arms around one another.

Though Roberts is very private with her personal life, she referenced Laign in a Facebook post in December, when she reflected back on her bone marrow transplant, which she received in 2012 and called a "critical milestone." 

"I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together," Roberts wrote at the time. The couple has reportedly been dating for more than 10 years.
