Actor Keiynan Lonsdale has spoken about his experience since coming out. The 25-year-old Australian actor stars in CW show The Flash. He came out as LGBTI with an Instagram post in May.
Originally, he had not planned to come out. Lonsdale said: ‘I never had any plans to come out until I was like in my 80s. Until then I’d just live a nice sad life.’ He attended his first LGBTI event since coming out, GLSEN’s Respect Awards, last Friday (20 October).
The Hollywood Reporter asked him about life post coming out. Lonsdale explained: ‘It’s been a wonderful experience, a very welcoming experience.’ He had previously believed that coming out ‘could be a career-ender for actors.’
