A former star of the Disney Channel shared her emotional journey toward self-acceptance after she fell in love with a woman.
Alyson Stoner — who had a recurring role on “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” — penned an essay explaining how much her life changed once she realized she had feelings for her instructor at a dance workshop.
“After I dizzied myself from doing knee spins, she walked toward me to correct my form,” Stoner recalls in the essay published by Teen Vogue. “My heart raced wildly and my body grew hot. Was I nervous to fail in front of an expert? Was I breathing heavily from being out of shape? Her smile was the most electrifying thing I’d ever seen.”
Stoner, 24, says she didn’t initially understand what she was feeling, but texted her mother and best friend that day to say that she’d met a woman who she expected was “going to be in my life for a very long time.”
