Kristy Mcnichol, Kristy McNichol, star of popular television shows “Family” and “Empty Nest,” has decided that she’s had enough of kids being bullied, and has come out to support them by announcing that she is a lsbn.
A photo of 49-year-old McNichol and her partner, Martie Allen, was published in People magazine. The actress decided to make a statement now because she is “approaching 50″ and also said that she wanted to “be open about who I am.”
McNichol and Allen have been together for the past 20 years, about as long as the Emmy-winning actress has been out of the public eye.
Her publicist, Jeff Ballard, told People, “She hopes that coming out can help kids who need support. She would like to help others who feel different.”
McNichol left her television career in the early 90′s after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, ABC News reported. She didn’t venture off too far, as she still lives in Los Angeles.
“She is very happy and healthy. And she enjoys living a very private life,” Ballard said.
Since leaving the Hollywood scene, McNichol enjoys traveling and focusing on her health by doing yoga and playing tennis.
The Internet Movie Database site reports that the actress holds an annual charity event, the Kristy McNichol Celebrity Tennis Tournament that raises money for the children’s organization H.E.L.P.
