TV star, Brandon Flynn comes out

13 Reasons Why actor, Brandon Flynn has come out in an emotional Instagram post.

The actor, who is most notable for his character, Justin Foley in the hit Netflix series, 13 Reason Why just came out in an Instagram post aimed at those who are against same-sex marriage in Australia. The Australian actor, who is 23,  was spurred on to come out following the No vote campaigns currently active in Australia.

One such message was a “vote no” message which was written in the sky. Although the star didn’t specifically mention whether he identified as gay or bisexual, he did include himself within the LGBT+ community in his passionate message.

He wrote,

“Just saw the “vote no” message in the sky, looming over Sydney.

“Thank you for raising money and hiring on a plane to write your lack of support amongst the clouds. I hope your hate and lack of understanding fades, just like those words will.

Brandon Flynn talked passionately about the stigma that many in the LGBT+ community faces.

He continued,

“Too many of my friends have been kicked out of their homes, kept in the closet, beat up, killed, ridiculed by church and state, institutionalized… and you are scared that if we vote YES, you won’t be able to show your hate for Us. Fu*k that.

“We’ve been scared sh*tless our whole lives thanks to all the stigmas that surround Us, stigmas that were set in place by the same kind of people who flew that plane over Sydney.

“We’ve fought, we’ve come out bravely even in our fear, and you wrote a message in the sky because you’re scared. Equality takes courage, it worries me that too many people in this world lack the balls to stand up for what is right.
