Raven-Symoné’s Quiet “Announcement"

Ignoring the pomp and circumstance of press releases and televised announcements, That’s So Raven star Raven-Symoné gave the world a subtle hint that she was LGBT-identifying in August, 2013, after she tweeted, “I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you.”  Her tweet was written in response to the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act.
