Keiynan Lonsdale – newest Hollywood star to come out as bisexual

The Flash star Keiynan Lonsdale has come out as bisexual in a frank and emotional social media post.

The 25-year-old Australian actor plays the role of Kid Flash in the popular US television series (sadly, sporting one of the most unappealing costumes on any superhero show).

“I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, & I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I’m becoming,” wrote Lonsdale on Instagram over the weekend.

“Spent way too many years hating myself, thinking I was less valuable because I was different.. which is just untrue. 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,” he said.

Lonsdale continued: “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.

“Ya know more & more I see so many young people being their best / truest selves, it’s fucking inspiring… so what have I been waiting for!? Who knows. Everyone in their own time. I hope we can all learn to embrace who we are & not judge people who aren’t exactly the same as us. The truth is we are all family, we’re all one. Just love.”

In addition to his part in The Flash, the Sydney-born Lonsdale is also known for his role as dance student Oliver Lloyd on the series Dance Academy (2012–2013) as well as for starring in The Divergent films. He is a talented dancer and has also released original music recordings.
