This Former Child Star Is A Lesbian!

Former child star Kristy McNichol comes out as a lesbian.

It may have taken her several decades but the star – who has lived with her girlfriend, Martie Allen, for over 20 years – says she has come out in hope it may stop some children from being the victim of homophobic bullying.

The former actress – who appeared in shows such as Family and Empty Nest, the former which saw her win an Emmy Award for her role as Buddy Lawrence – says that she has chosen to talk about her sexuality now because she is ‘approaching 50’ and wants to ‘be open about who I am.’

Kudos to her!
