The latest celebrity to come out is none other than Raven-Symone and she did it on Twitter.
I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you— Raven-Symonè (@MissRavenSymone) August 2, 2013
The 27-year-old actress later released a statement saying, “I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted . . . I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to.”
In doing that she has finally put an end to rumors about her sexual orientation that she has before now kept private.
My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I'm datings to know. I'm not one for a public display of my life.— Raven-Symonè (@MissRavenSymone) May 18, 2012
As expected, the Twitterverse erupted into frenzy or reactions after the tweet. However, they were largely supportive.
Raven Symone is a lesbian????? That's so Raven— Ryan R (@TheRealRyRob) August 5, 2013
Raven-Symoné didn't just come out of the closet. It's been known she's a lesbian for a while now. It was just no one else's business.— Duke E. Brown (@hotterthanjuly) August 2, 2013
Now that Raven-Symoné came out of the closet, instead of saying "That's so gay" you now have to say "That's so Raven."— gabby white (@gabriellejwhite) August 3, 2013
