Colton Haynes Comes Out As Gay
Hottie Colton Haynes may just become first star to come out publicly in 2016.
The ‘Arrow’ and ‘Teen Wolf’ star has long been the subject of gay rumors and has always dodged questions about his sexuality, but a recent Tumblr post has fans of the actor in a frenzy.
On Tumblr, a user had written, “When I found out Colton Haynes had a secret gay past, I got so excited even though i know it makes absolutely no difference in my life.”
“Was it a secret?” Haynes responded on his own official Tumblr blog. “Let’s all just enjoy life & have no regrets :)”
Good for him!
Twitter users were quick to react to the response with reactions ranging from, “Colton Haynes came out on Tumblr. I believe in the miracles of Jesus Christ,” to, “He’s been out since he left the womb.”
The photographs, which were featured in a now-defunct gay magazine ‘XY’, see the actor kissing and embracing another guy while wearing very few clothes. Actually when Teen Wolf first premiered, Haynes hired a lawyer to prevent blogs from running the said pictures (more pics on the gallery after the article).
We guess he’s okay sharing his love for gay dudes now. It’s 2016 after all.
Haynes also posted a picture of his gay brother Joshua, Joshua’s husband Scott and their child Wren.
Just last month, Haynes opened up about being hospitalized for anxiety, and his struggles with it since childhood. “For those of you who are suffering with intense anxiety…ur not alone,” he wrote on Twitter. “It’s been a constant struggle for me since 5th grade. It’s a battle.”
He’s finally free!
