In the height of her 'Married... With Children' career, Amanda announced that she was a lesbian. Since then, she has been a strong advocate for LGBT rights, and has made numerous public appearances talking about this cause. 

There were not a lot of openly gay actors and actresses during the 90's, and so it was a very big moment for Bearse.

"There's been an enormous positive experience from the gay community, and I'm getting a lot of offers from various organizations to speak or be on panels."

After she came out, she adopted a daughter named Zoe. Currently, she is married to Carrie Schenken, whom she wed in 2010. 

Retiring from showbusiness, Bearse now runs a coffee shop in Georgia.
