'Fred' star Lucas Cruikshank: 'I'm gay'

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.

    No... really? Fred's gay?

    Only Cold War surplus East German GayDar would have missed that one.

    He'll land on his feet. He's a cute little pup and talented too.

    And this matters WHY? As long as we continue to make such a big deal out of who's straight and who's gay, we continue to feed the divisive atmosphere. The only way this would matter is if I was trying to hook up with him – if I was a straight girl, I'd know I'm out in the cold, and if I was a gay guy, I'd know I might have a shot.

    Otherwise, who cares?

    • huhb

      Here's why it matters: without gay visibility, the lies told about us are allowed to flourish.

      The more gay people that come out, the more the lies are de-fanged.

      And they'll never, ever be able to overcome that.

      I agree, we are not yet to the point where it doesnt matter. It matters because of the inequiality and hatred directed at gay people. The more people get to "know" gays (even through TV characters or actors) the better and more normalized it will seem to the general public. This is a good thing. In 20 years, it won't matter. Hopefully.

    That's no surprise and I'm aware that this is a slightly biased comment, with apologies to more mature gay people.

    I dislike Cruishank's antics as a so-called actor. He's part of the same generation of Nickelodeon actors that brought down Nick's quality programming. Remember Clarissa Explains it All or The Midnight Society back in the 90s? There is nothing as stimulating or intelligent today on Nickelodeon. Except some cartoons.

    These bimbos have an agenda and if they keep you sucked in and the only person that will be into trouble for this will be him and only him. I would pull back from this disaster project that frankly the concept does not work and remember
