The former child star -- famous for roles in Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire -- shared a photo of herself at a gay club as a teenager after Sunday's massacre at Pulse nightclub in Florida and opened up about why the LGBT community has always felt like home to her.
"Being a 'straight girl' where I clearly didn't belong, but I will say, I felt so welcomed there. I have never had a better experience at a club than I did then. Great music and people," the 28-year-old actress and writer explained. "And one of my friends met his partner that night!"
"I haven't been to one since college, except once when a friend brought me along," she continued. "I didn't feel like I belonged there. But the LGBTQ community has always felt like home, especially a few years later when I, uh, learned something about myself. So thank you."
If that all seems slightly vague, Wilson clarified to a fan, "I said I *used* to identify as mostly straight. I've embraced the Bi/Queer label lately"
