Actress Ally Sheedy used her appearance on the red carpet at a recent gay event to 'out' her daughter as a lesbian.
The Breakfast Club star took her teenage daughter Rebecca to a charity event in Los Angeles earlier this week (begs28Jun10) for The Trevor Project, a non-profit group dedicated to helping youngsters who are questioning their sexuality.
Sheedy explained the reason she attended was because the schoolgirl recently announced she is a lesbian.
She told reporters, "My daughter has just come out. So (I'm here because) it's personal."
