Former Disney actor Alyson Stoner came out as bisexual in an essay for Teen Vogue.
Stoner explained the first time she had fallen in love with a woman, according to PinkNews. She talked about finding herself in the wake of that realization.
“I’m asking for you to feel what I feel on a human level, to appreciate the beauty of someone diving into the unknown in pursuit of love and truth,” Stoner wrote. “I’m asking you to accept me as I accept myself.”
Stoner, who previously acted in “Cheaper by the Dozen” and “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody,” mentioned the clash of her religious beliefs and finding her sexuality.
“Whatever your identity, you are lovable and wonderful and enough,” she wrote.“I’m on the other side of some of these battles internally, but it’s still a challenge in the outside world.”
