Right Said, Fred: Nickelodeon Star Lucas Cruikshank Comes Out as Gay

By: Brandon Voss

A YouTube sensation who became the star of Nickelodeon’s Fred: The Movie franchise, 19-year-old Lucas Cruikshank has revealed that he’s gay in a new YouTube video.

Joined in bed with gal pal Jennifer Veal, who appears on the Disney Channel sitcom Jessie, Lucas addresses the topic while answering silly questions submitted by fans. When “Are you gay?” is popped, both are in total, giddy agreement that yep, he is indeed gay.

"It feels so weird saying it on camera," Lucas says, laughing. "But my family and friends have known for like three years; I just haven’t felt the need to announce it on the Internet."

Wow, he just got a lot less annoying. OK, a little.
