Colton Haynes reflects upon his coming out!

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!!! ❤️❤️”
