Is Candace Cameron Gay?
A married same-sex couple would be welcome at Candace Cameron Bure’s Fuller House.
The co-host of The View has previously taken a conservative stance on issues like the so-called freedom of religion and bakers’ discretion to turn away same-sex couples.
However, Cameron Bure said that her opinions on the subject were misinterpreted when asked if a storyline including a same-sex marriage would disturb her, according to Deadline.
In a recent panel discussion at the Television Critics Association meeting, she stated, “I’m always protecting religious freedom, and that’s what I was talking about on The View. “I didn’t express how I felt about that personally.”
I’m an actress on a television program, and I support anything that humans go through. I’d love for all of our characters to explore whatever themes are currently being discussed in our culture and society, she continued. And I completely agree with it.
The 39-year-old Cameron Bure gained notoriety for his portrayal of D.J. Tanner in the ABC television series Full House, which ran from 1987 to 1995.
On the eagerly awaited program Fuller House, she will play this character once more. An atypical household in San Francisco is run by Cameron Bure’s character in this Netflix revival, which will debut on February 26.
She plays a widowed mother who is dependent on her sister Stephanie and her friend Kimmy to help raise her three sons. The plot of Full House, which focused on three men raising three daughters, is similar to this one.
Following a comment from executive producer Jeff Franklin, who was also present at the panel, a question on same-sex marriage was posed.
He mentioned the idea of a marriage equality-related subplot. Franklin also mentioned a friend who had gay parents and who would explain his own upbringing to people using the premise of the original series.
