Hi Lilith! I'm Isaac, a new English tutor on Italki. It could mean "She identified me to our friends." but there are multiple definitions depending on the context. If you would like clearer answer, maybe you could give me more context such as the sentences before and/or after that one. I hope I was able to help :)

It means that she revealed something about me. Most likely something that I didn't want people to know about me.

To "out someone" means to expose someone's secret. It could be something like sexual preference, identity, or really anything else about a person that was hidden.
