Actor Keiynan Lonsdale, who came out as a bisexual after his post on Instagram on Saturday, has received an overwhelming support from his fans.
The 25-year-old Aussie who plays the role of Wally West/Kid Flash in the American TV series, The Flash, took to Instagram, where he talked about his sexual orientation, and said that he couldn’t “fake it” anymore.
I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, & I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I'm becoming. Spent way too many years hating myself, thinking I was less valuable because I was different.. which is just untrue. A couple years ago I was able to accept myself, & it saved my life, but now I've gotten to a new road block & I feel kind of lost. I gotta take the next step & actually embrace who I am, which is pretty exciting. Not faking shit anymore, not apologising for falling in love with people no matter their gender. I've become bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared... no one should feel like that about themselves, especially when there is so much good life to live. Ya know more & more I see so many young people being their best / truest selves, it's fucking inspiring... so what have I been waiting for!? Who knows. Everyone in their own time. I hope we can all learn to embrace who we are & not judge people who aren't exactly the same as us. The truth is we are all family, we're all one. Just love. Keiy. ❤
Following his Instagram post, many fans took to Twitter and other social media platforms to congratulate the actor on coming out in the open about it.
