Step Up's Alyson Stoner Comes Out as Queer: 'I Fell in Love With a Woman'

Step Up actress and former Disney star Alyson Stoner is opening up about her sexuality and how she fell in love with a woman.

The 24-year-old entertainer wrote an editorial piece for Teen Vogue in which she told fans how she met a woman that she knew would be in her life for a long time and how they fell in love.

“OK, we were in a relationship. I fell in love with a woman,” she wrote.

Alyson says it took some time for her to accept her sexuality, but now she accepts who she is and loves herself.

“I, Alyson, am attracted to men, women, and people who identify in other ways,” she wrote. “I can love people of every gender identity and expression. It is the soul that captivates me. It is the love we can build and the goodness we can contribute to the world by supporting each other’s best journeys.”

“Some people in the industry warned me that I’d ruin my career, miss out on possible jobs, and potentially put my life in danger if I ever came out,” she added. “My dream and all I’d worked tirelessly for since the age of 6 was suddenly at risk by my being . . . true to myself. Imagine receiving death threats (as I have); would you choose to live a lie in order to protect your loved ones?”

Alyson also released a new love song that she wrote to go along with her coming out story. Listen to “When It’s Right” below!
