The 41-year-old, who's been married to Ryan DeBolt since 2012, made her announcement while giving a speech at the 40 to None Summit in Los Angeles on Saturday; an event aimed at curbing homelessness among the LGBT youth population.

"So many of our youth experiencing homelessness are youth whose lives touch on many intersections," she said in her speech. "Whether they be gender identity, gender expression, race, class, sexual orientation, religion, citizenship status."

"And, because of the intersections that exist in my own life: Woman, multi-racial woman, woman of color, queer, bisexual, Mexican-Irish American, immigrant, and raised by families heavily rooted in Catholicism on both my Mexican & Irish sides, I am deeply invested in projects that allow our youth’s voices to be heard, and that support our youth in owning their own complex narratives so that we can show up for them in the ways they need us to."

The actress also took to Twitter following her speech to continue to heap praise upon the organization, writing, "#ThankYou @TrueColorsFund 4 the work you do 2 end #LGBTQ #YouthHomelessness & your support #Woman #Latinx #Bisexual #Intersectionality."
