Out & proud: Nickelodeon star Lucas Cruikshank reveals he’s gay

On Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Nickelodeon's 26th Annual Kids' Choice Awards - ArrivalsComing out on social media seems to be the latest trend, especially for younger celebrities. The latest to reveal his sexuality is Lucas Cruikshank, most known for his role as the very hyper character “Fred” in the Nickelodeon movie of the same name. According to TMZ on August 20, Cruikshank has revealed he’s gay by posting his coming out video on YouTube.

Conveniently, the 19-year-old actor rose to popularity through YouTube, so what better way to share his sexuality than the social media site where he first gained his recognition. Cruikshank made the brief video with the help of his friend his Jennifer Veal, star of the Disney show “Jessie.”

In the video he says, “I’m gay,” and then follows that with “it feels so weird saying it on camera.”

The young actor then says that his family and friends have known for three years and he felt it was the time to announce it on the internet.

Cruikshank is the fifth celebrity to come out as gay in the past few weeks. First, ‘The Cosby Show’ star Raven-Symone came out as a lesbian via Twitter, then British actor Ben Whishaw, followed by young Australian actor Troye Sivan, who also came out on YouTube. And just last week WWE Superstar Darren Young came out as gay in an interview with TMZ.

But for Tarringo, growing up in the depths of the inner city both in Boston, MA and Springfield, MA made him believe that expression through the literary voice was un-cool and unattainable. As a very quiet and shy child he learned it became very valuable in his self expression. Born in 1976, Tarringo was the first child, grandchild and nephew in a family that had grown accustomed to struggle. His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
