Raven-Symone has been in the public eye for most of her life. Many may remember her first iconic role as little Olivia on The Cosby Show. In 2013, she decided to come out as a lesbian. 

During an interview with Garcelle Beauvais, she confessed that she had “reservations” about playing a lesbian on the film ‘A Girl Like Grace’. 

“I was scared. I was scared for my mom to seat. I was scared for my mom to see me kiss a girl on screen. That was a lot of mixed emotions that I’m still ironing out. Nothing wrong with it, it’s just when I watch it, I see the clip where I’m shaking and it’s like my legs spread open. I’m like ‘Oh My Gosh!”, she stated. 

During the interview, Raven also mentioned the difficulties she encountered while growing up with mixed feelings about her sexuality. 

She continued by saying, “I remember my moused to be like he’s so sexy, and I’m like, but she’s sexy too. Why don’t you say that? Why am I the only one thinking that she’s sexy too? But, you’re only talking about him. Is something wrong with me?”
