Raven-Symoné, despite having a primarily small-screen career, has been a household name since she was a 3-year-old starring in The Cosby Show. Since then, she's had a series of hit shows — That's So Raven, Kim Possible, and Hangin' With Mr. Cooper, to name a few — but despite her ubiquitousness, the now 27-year-old has been a fiercely private star. Until Friday, when the actress tweeted that she could finally get married.



Hardcore R-S fans know that she's spoken about her decision to keep her sexuality private and wouldn't be shocked by this revelation, but for the Disney set, this is quite the surprise. Thankfully, stars' coming-out announcements are being treated less and less like groundbreaking news. But to have a stalwart member of the younger Disney set identify herself as lesbian feels like a hugely positive moment in pop culture. (Buzzfeed)
