Ally Sheedy, the 1980s actress best known for her role in The Breakfast Club, announced her daughter was gay this week.

Sheedy took her teenage daughter Rebecca to a charity event in Los Angeles for The Trevor Project, a non-profit group which helps LGBT teenagers.

She told reporters she attended the event because Rebecca recently said she was a lesbian.

Sheedy said: “My daughter has just come out. So [I’m here because] it’s personal.”
