We are sending a whole lot of love to Bex Taylor-Klaus after she bravely revealed that she is gay.
The 22-year-old Scream actress came out to her fans on social media this week. There has been speculation about her sexuality for some time now as she plays a gay character on the MTV series.
“hello my name is bex and yes the rumors are true I am v gay,” she tweeted.
One fan asked Bex is she was scared to come out during today’s times.
“Terrified, absolutely terrified,” Bex said (according to AutoStraddle). “Part of why I’m coming out is because there’s so much hate and fear in and around the LGBT community right now and it’s important for us not to halt progress out of fear. Yes, it’s a scary time, but we need to stand up and say, even if you are afraid, I’m not afraid, or even if I am afraid, I’m strong. I am who I am and you can’t take that away from me.”
