We really loved when Colton Haynes came out (not because he’s so cute, but because it was so cathartic and empowering for him). Now he has decided to share a few thoughts about his coming out and this so very important year for him… and his fans!
“This year… I came out of the closet publicly. It chokes me up just reading that sentence. Happy tears :) Knowing that my younger self would be so proud of the person I’ve become. Strong enough to overcome the cards I was dealt growing up & brave enough to finally have the guts to try & help others feel truly happy with who they are.”
“I ran away & lived in my best friend Maurice’s closet. I felt so lost & was insanely rebellious. I didn’t have the knowledge or tools to accept myself and know my worth until recently. I’m so lucky to have people in my life who accept me for who I am and don’t judge me for simply being me.”
“I’m sending a hug to all of you! Coming out on your own time and when it’s safe is the most important thing. Just know it unlocks so many beautiful opportunities :) Happy National Coming Out Day. Please share your stories with me, would love to hear them!!! ❤️❤️”
