What Does This Tweet from Raven-Symone Mean?

Raven-Symone tweeted what appears to be an announcement about her sexual orientation.

Raven-Symon has, for years, played coy about her sexual orientation. Though it’s been rumored for years that the former Disney Channel star is a lesbian, she’s never confirmed it until now. Maybe?

I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you

– Raven-Symon (@MissRavenSymone) August 2, 2013

First of all, it’s not exactly a direct statement; Raven doesn’t explicitly state that she is a lesbian. It’s also not clear exactly what motivated this tweet. The most recent news on same-sex marriage came Thursday, a full 24 hours before Raven’s tweet, when Minnesota became the latest U.S. state to perform same-sex marriages. Raven does not live in Minnesota, nor is she originally from The Land of 10,000 Lakes.

Raven has previously addressed rumors about her sexuality. Just last year, she tweeted:

I’m living my PERSONAL life the way I’m happiest. I’m not one, in my 25 year career to disclose who I’m dating. and I shall not start now. My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life.

As if to clarify, Raven retweeted several fans who said, “She been out, momma just didn’t have time for bullshit. and I LIVVVEEE” and “Can I have your spot in the Cheetah Girls? Disney might not like you anymore.”

Congratulations (maybe?), Raven!
