Keiynan Lonsdale, the Australian actor who plays Wally West – a.k.a. Kid Flash – in the US TV show Flash, revealed he is bisexual.
In an Instagram post, Lonsdale – who also appeared in the “Divergent” film series – said that accepting himself saved his life. He is now taking “the next step and actually embrace who I am”.
Lonsdale wrote: “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.”
He added: “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.”
