TVLine: Girl Meets World star Rowan Blanchard says it is “very important” to her, having very recently identified herself as queer, that there be LGBT representation on her Disney Channel series.
Over the weekend — and on the heels of penning the first-person piece “Sorry, Not Sorry: How I Quit Apologizing for Existing” for Rookie Magazine — the 14-year-old Blanchard explained in a series of tweets how though she has “only ever liked boys,” she didn’t want to label herself as “straight gay whateva.”
As she fielded an array of reactions from the Twitterverse for her honesty, the actress said she “would really be here” for any LGBT representation on Girl Meets World, making clear that “being queer to me just means not putting a label on sexuality — just existing.”
Girl Meets World in its first two seasons has tackled weighty topics such as gender equality and Asperger’s syndrome.
