Let me preface this by saying I have no idea who Lucas Cruikshank is. Probably due to the fact I don’t watch Nickelodeon or still at my previous employment, working at a kids/teen online magazine. But I’m sure some of our younger readers will. The 19-year-old comic actor is known for his character Fred Figglehorn and subsequent Fred: The Movie franchise.
Cruikshank just posted a YouTube video with his girl BFF Jennifer Veal. The two filmed their answers to user-submitted questions. Halfway through the clip, the QUESTION gets asked, “Are You Gay?” With a resounding hands up, “I’m gay” response, Cruikshank confirms the obvious. Even I, who didn’t know who he was, figured that out within two seconds of the video 🙂 I kid. He goes on to reveal he’s been out to his family for three years. Props for taking the step to publicly announce it. Check out his coming out below.
