It’s been just revealed that Raven-Symone declined the offer that Disney made her. Check out the news below.
‘While #RavenSymone certainly gives life to the character Raven Baxter, she wants to make it clear that they are two separate people,’ TSR notes.
They continued and said: ‘That’s why when #Disney reportedly gave her the option to make Raven Baxter a lesbian for the “That’s So Raven” reboot “Raven’s Home,” she said she declined, according to @People.’

TSR also said that ‘Raven-Symone, who came out as a lesbian in 2013 after the legalization of same-sex marriage, revealed during a recent appearance on the Pride podcast that Disney Channel executives asked whether she was interested in having her “Raven’s Home” character identify as a lesbian in the reboot.’
‘You know what, there was a conversation before the series started and I was asked the question, ‘Would you like Raven Baxter to be a lesbian?’ And I said, no. I said no,’ Raven-Symone said.
‘And the reason I said no wasn’t because I wasn’t proud of who I was, or I didn’t want to represent the LGBTQ+ community in any way.’
Someone said: ‘Everyone know raven Baxter was boy crazy. Keep it that way,’ and a follower said: ‘I understand, Raven Baxter was very much in love with her man Devon 🤣’
