Keiynan Lonsdale Reveals Filming 'Love, Simon' Helped Him Come Out

Keiynan Lonsdale is opening up about coming out.

The 26-year-old The Flash actor revealed that he wasn’t out while filming Love, Simon and the movie helped him become more comfortable with himself.

“There’s so many beautiful LGBT stories that have been made, and we’ve heard a lot about the heartbreak and the suffering, because it’s very, very real,” he told ET. “But life can be really incredible, and when you are yourself, you don’t have to waste all that time trying to be something else. Like, that’s something worth celebrating.”

“The movie isn’t just bubbly and happy because everything’s great and groovy, it’s a celebration because you’ve been through that journey,” he added. “You’ve been through those hardships, you’ve been through all that stuff. You can smile now. You can breathe.”
