Former Disney Star Comes Out as Gay

Raven-Symoné, of the Disney television series, “That’s So Raven,” has officially come out of the closet as a lesbian. Not that her true fans really needed psychic powers to tell you that…

The 27-year-old actress has always been very private about her personal life, until now.

Today, she tweeted:

A little late, but it’s a clear reference to the Supreme Court’s decision in June to overturn both Prop 8 in California and the Defense of Marriage Act.

Raven insists she’s always been out, but just preferred to keep those matters out of the press and to herself.

After the National Enquirer published a story in May of last year about Raven living with her girlfriend, “America’s Next Top Model” contestant AzMarie Livingston, she addressed the reports.

“My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know,” Raven tweeted in response.

“I’m not one for a public display of my life, however that is my right as a HUMAN BEing whether straight or gay. To tell or not to tell. As long as I’m not harming anyone. I am a light being made from love. And my career is the only thing I would like to put on display, not my personal life. Kisses!”
