Nickelodeon star comes out as Gay

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

He got his start as a YouTube star. Now, Nickelodeon actor Lucas Cruikshank, who is best known for creating the hyperactive, over-the-top character Fred Figglehorn, has revealed he is Gay by posting a coming-out video where he got his start in the first place - YouTube.

Cruikshank, 19, came out during a question and answer session with actress Jennifer Veal, telling fans 'I'm Gay.'

'It feels so weird saying it on camera,' he said, laughing nervously.

'My family and friends have known for, like, three years - I just haven't felt the need to announce it on the Internet,' he explained, adding that he felt 'so awkward.'

Though coming out was clearly something Cruikshank wanted to do publicly, he did mention that he was frustrated that he had to do it at all. At one point he turned to Veal and asked, 'How come you didn't have to make a video saying you're straight?'

That's a good question, actually.

Cruikshank isn't the only young actor to come out recently. Earlier this month, former 'That's So Raven' star Raven-Symone came out on Twitter, when she wrote that she can 'finally get married' and thanked the government for it.
