Raven Symone just gave us all something to think about. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the actress/singer says she doesn’t need labels, and would prefer not to be categorized as “gay” or “African-American.”
“I don’t want to be labeled ‘gay,’ ” the ex-Disney star said said. “I want to be labeled ‘a human who loves humans.’ ”
And while some may take issue with that, perhaps arguing that she should embrace her identity, Raven does say that she’s proud of who she is — she would just rather not be put in a box. While Oprah tried to get her to talk about “coming out,” Symone said she has always tried to keep her personal life private and refuses to let people use her sexuality for conversation fodder, as she’s tweeted about before.
