This afternoon, Raven Symoné confirmed she is a proud a member of the LGBT community by tweeting, "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you." Symone is referring to the Supreme Court overturning the Defense of Marriage Act back in June.  

There have been rumors about the former Cosby kid's sexuality for sometime. Last year, the National Inquirer published a story that she was a lesbian and living with her girlfriend AzMarie Livingston. In May of 2012 the That's So Raven star tweeted, "I'm living my personal life the way I'm happiest. I'm not one… to disclose who I'm dating. And I shall not start now. My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I'm dating, to know." 

Congrats to Ms. Symone for coming out today.  She joins other African-Americans who recently came out, such as NBA player Jason Collins and Magic Johnson's son EJ Johnson.
