Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Nickelodeon star Lucas Cruikshank has revealed his true sexuality on Tuesday in a Q&A video heposted on his channel on YouTube.
Together with his best friend and Disney star Jennifer Veal, Cruikshank answered questions sent in by fans, at the same time goofing around.
A fan asked, “Why do you both look so pretty?” Cruikshank answered, “I just don’t know,” and proceeded to read and answer other questions.
Then, the final question came. Veal mimed a drumroll and read the question, “Are you gay?”
The 19-year-old then burst into giggles before saying, “I’m gay. It’s so weird saying that on camera!” he then went on to explain that while his family and close friends have known for years, he did not feel the “need to announce it on the Internet.”
Meanwhile, Cruikshank later took to twitter to thank fans for their support saying, “I honestly love you all so much. Your support is everything and I’m glad you liked the video.”
The “Fred” star also posted a screen grab of a short message from singer Cher that reads, “proud of you!”
