For someone on such a hit TV show, and on the Disney channel no less, I really commend Rowan for being honest and open with her fans about her sexuality. I think identifying as queer or even just being open to same-sex relationships is something that more and more people are doing. You never know who you will fall for or find attractive and I like that Rowan, and others, are staying open to this possibility and not allowing it to scare them. That's not to say that everyone has to feel this way or have an easy time identifying their sexuality. It can be a process, and it's also really private for some people. That's okay too.
Rowan might be young, but she's a strong girl and I can't wait to see where she goes in the future!
