We’re pretty used to reading and writing about Colton Haynes – this super-hot young actor has shared his coming out problems with the world, and everyone responded with support and love. Colton is now engaged to Jeff Leatham, celebrity florist, and he recently talked about his coming out struggles.
“I can honestly say that it takes time to be comfortable enough to come out… it has to be on your own time but when i did… it changed my life for the better! It opened up so many doors for me and I don’t have to feel like the elephant in the room anymore. There is so much support i never knew was available for me and i am so proud to say that i am gay and it hasn’t done anything to hurt what i love to do in life. Times are thankfully changing.”
“It was an intense struggle for years. All the self shame lead me to have a breakdown and i had to quite for a while. Once i came out it all went away. I got multiple offers for work and honestly haven’t felt better. It changes your life and if someone isn’t going to hire me for being born the way that i am…they don’t deserve my time or energy.”
