Since Lucas Cruikshank is such a YouTube sensation, it makes sense that he would choose that venue to come out.
The star of the Nickelodeon series "Fred" based on the character he created announced to the world that he was gay during a Q & A video with his friend Jennifer Veal, of Disney Channel's "Jessie."
After Veal asks Cruikshank if he is gay, he responds "I'm gay. It feels so weird saying it on camera!"
The video is pretty lighthearted as you can see here:
The BFF's, who are in bed the entire time b t dubs, proceed to giggle a great deal and the 19-year-old Cruikshank explains that he's been out to those close to him, but never felt the need to publicly announce it.
"My friends and family have known for, like, three years, I just haven't felt the need to announce it on the Internet," he said. "I feel awkward!"
Veal even sneaks in a question about whether or not Cruikshank would date her if he was straight. It's probably the most adorable coming out you will ever see.
