In the question-and-answer YouTube video Ask Lucas and Jennifer, Lucas Cruikshank answered the question “are you gay?” with a big fat “yes.”
The YouTube and Nickelodeon star, best known for his character Fred, said he hasn’t felt the need to announce his sexuality on the internet. But his co-host Jennifer Veal (from Disney’s Jessie) points out that, since they post photos of them having sleepovers and doing facials, it probably should’ve been obvious.
Check out the video below:
Cruikshank’s news was met with positive support from the online community that has followed and loved him for years. He even tweeted this:

In the video, he asks Veal, “How come you don’t have to make a video saying you’re straight?” How come, indeed.
