Lesbian comedian Wanda Sykes has revealed that she never intended to come out herself in a speech she was giving at gay rights rally back in 2008.

Sykes, 43, took part in a rally in California to back the right for same sex couples to marry in the state after Proposition 8 was instated.

In a sensational interview with Piers Morgan the comedienne revealed that she had no intention of revealing she had married her same sex partner.

Speaking on the chat show, she said: "Everybody who knows me personally, they know I'm gay.

And that's the way people should be able to live our lives, really. We shouldn't have to be standing out here demanding something we automatically should have as citizens of this country."

"I had no intention of making that speech. I was just there as one of the crowd for support. I kinda shocked myself when I was in the middle of it.

"(I felt) liberated. The best thing is now - not that I was hiding before - but there's absolutely nothing to hide. I am what I am, this is it. Now there's nothing I can't say."

Talking about married life with her partner Alex and the reaction of her parents, she said: "I think time, and also my attitude (helped). It's more about communication. It's a big moment, telling your parents."

"Married life is great, I'm very happy."
