Nickelodeon star Lucas Cruikshank has come out as gay in a new video he posted on YouTube. Cruikshank, 19, made the video with his friend Jennifer Veal, who stars in Jessie, which is on the Disney Channel.
Cruikshank, who starred in Fred in viral videos, then eventually a movie and television shows, came out after he and Veal answer a series of questions from fans.
“Are you gay?” she asks, to which he responds, “I’m gay. My family and friends have known for like three years. I just haven’t felt the need to post it on the Internet, Just Jared reports.
He then laughs and admits “I feel awkward,” and asks Veal “when you first met me did you know I was gay?” She answered yes.
"How come you didn't have to make a video saying you're straight?" he added.
TMZ notes when Cruikshank played his exuberant character, Fred, he had a crush on a girl named Judy.
