‘The Flash’ star Keiynan Lonsdale comes out as bisexual

“The Flash” star Keiynan Lonsdale came out as bisexual in an emotional Instagram post on Friday.

Lonsdale, 25, described his journey to self-acceptance in a caption for a photo of himself wearing a black sweater and a silver key earring.

“I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, and I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I’m becoming,” Lonsdale, who plays Kid Flash, writes. “Spent way too many years hating myself, thinking I was less valuable because I was different … which is just untrue.”

Lonsdale continued, “A couple years ago I was able to accept myself, & it saved my life, but now I’ve gotten to a new road block & I feel kind of lost. I gotta take the next step & actually embrace who I am, which is pretty exciting. Not faking shit anymore, not apologising for falling in love with people no matter their gender. I’ve become bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared… no one should feel like that about themselves, especially when there is so much good life to live.”

The actor shared the photo on Twitter and received an outpouring of support.

Lonsdale thanked everyone for their positivity with his own tweet.

“The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on CW.
