A year after publicly addressing her sexuality on Twitter, Raven-Symoné gave her first in-depth interview on the matter.
Appearing on Sunday's episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now, the former Disney Channel actress, 28, told Oprah Winfrey: "I don't want to be labeled gay. I want to be labeled a human who loves humans. I'm tired of being labeled."
After years of speculation, Symoné opened up about her sexuality on Twitter after the Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act in the summer of 2013.

Raven-Symoné and Lindsay Lohan were once roommates, but the former Cosby Show star may not have the highest opinion of her former pal.
"It's unnecessary to go to the most popular restaurant in the world when you have a scandal on your head and then get mad that someone's gonna take a picture of you," Symoné tells Oprah Winfrey on Sunday's episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? when asked how she has stayed out of the tabloids. "That's your fault, Boo-Boo. Stay in the house."
Though she does not call out Lohan by name, many fans are speculating that Symoné was speaking with her former roomie in mind.

If there's one thing Raven-Symoné never lacked, it's self-assurance.
The former Disney star, 25, who once contently called herself "thick and fabulous," showed off a decidedly slimmer look at Wednesday's People's Choice Awards. Strutting her stuff in a cleavage-bearing, all-black leather ensemble with thigh-high Louboutin boots, Symoné says she was never one to consider herself unattractive when she was still heavy.
"I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did," she tells PEOPLE. "So, whatever."
