I am not a lesbian, says Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg has set the record straight about her sexuality after her former co-host Raven-Symoné joked that she gave her “lesbian vibes”. 

The 67-year-old actress and comedian, who has played several LGBT characters on screen, said that she is not a lesbian and has always had lesbian friends.

The View star opened up about her personal life on Raven’s podcast, The Best Podcast Ever, where she was joined by Raven’s wife and co-host, Miranda Maday. Raven, who came out as gay in 2013, admitted that she had a crush on Whoopi when they worked together on the daytime talk show. She also said that Whoopi sometimes gave her “stud vibes”, a term used to describe masculine-presenting lesbians.

Whoopi responded by saying that she has been asked about her sexuality for a long time, but she has never identified as a lesbian. She said that she has boundaries with her LGBT friends and respects their choices. She also said that she does not conform to any gender stereotypes and embraces both her masculine and feminine sides.

Raven praised Whoopi for being a role model for the LGBT community and for living in a “duality” that transcends sexual orientation. She said that Whoopi is a human being who does not fit into any labels and that she admires her for that. Whoopi agreed and said that people should not be limited by “this or that” and that they should just be themselves.

The podcast episode received positive feedback from fans who commented on the video. Some said that they could see Whoopi as bisexual or lesbian, but they respected her decision to keep her private life private. Others said that they did not care about Whoopi’s sexuality and that they just loved her as an actress and a person. A few also expressed their excitement for the upcoming “Sister Act 3”, which Whoopi confirmed last year.
