Raven-Symone opened up recently about why she didn’t want her character on Raven’s Home to be a lesbian. Before the series started filming, the Disney star revealed what execs asked her about who her rebooted character would be.
In an interview with “The Pride Podcast” Raven said, You know what, there was a conversation before the series started and I was asked the question, ‘Would you like Raven Baxter to be a lesbian?’ And I said, no. I said no.” “And the reason I said wasn’t because I wasn’t proud of who I was, or I didn’t want to represent the LGBTQ+ community in any way,” Raven, who came out as a lesbian in 2013, added. “It was because Raven Baxter is Raven Baxter is Raven Baxter.”
