Colton Haynes Officially Comes Out, Discusses Struggles With Anxiety Comments (0)

Colton Haynes, an actor who many assume came out when he replied to a Tumblr post, has officially come out as gay in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Haynes now says he was taken aback by the media attention to that Tumblr post:

“It was a complete shock. I wasn’t ready to be back in the headlines,” says Haynes, who is in fact gay but has never publicly addressed his sexuality (and, like many others on his path, took advice early in his career to subdue it). “I should have made a comment or a statement, but I just wasn’t ready. I didn’t feel like I owed anyone anything. I think in due time, everyone has to make those decisions when they’re ready, and I wasn’t yet. But I felt like I was letting people down by not coming forward with the rest of what I should have said.”

Haynes has a very good response for anyone who thinks the ready in their own time excuse regarding closeted stars is bunk:

“I’ve had terminal anxiety my entire life. Physically ill, fainting. I’m 27 years old, and I have an ulcer. I had to step back.”

I appreciate that the article explicitly acknowledges Hollywood's homophobia and the fact that Haynes took advice to go into the closet following the appearance of his racy XY photos. I'm very understanding of his emotional issues and period of adjustment, but it does send a chilling message to others when a closeted gay star (whose motivations and limitations may not be transparent) has lawyers sending cease-and-desist orders to gay bloggers threatening legal action for posting images that seemed joyful and gay-positive.

But that is in the past, as is any mystery regarding his sexual orientation. I hate when gay people come out after a period of closet-shaming and the response is, Duh, everybody knows that, or worse, Ugh, he took too long, who cares?

I think it is the very least we can do to welcome public figures out when they take the plunge. It still matters in the grand scheme of things, and in Colton's case, it clearly matters a lot to him.

Colton Haynes Kinda Comes Out Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-01-02 at 8.19.03 PM

In reposting a comment regarding his “secret gay past,” Colton Haynes has more or less come out by questioning whether it was all that secret to begin with.

This is such a tired argument that closeted celebrities make all the time, the assertion that they were really out all long just because they were out to their friends.

Not true.

The definition of being professionally, publicly out is being on the record affirming you are gay. You don't have to do a People cover, you don't have to release a book, but you do have to say it. It has to be a stated fact of who you are. (This is what it means to be out; I'm not saying every gay person or gay celebrity has to come out, I'm just saying this gay celebrity was not previously out and shouldn't play dumb.)

Even more interestingly, Haynes wasn't just glass-closeted, he had lawyers harassing people on the Internet for posting images of him kissing a dude in an old issue of XY. Those images are hard to find because of that robust, behind-the-scenes effort. So yeah, Colton, it was a secret. Or at least, that is how it was perceived. And you allowed that perception to persist.

That said, none of it makes him a bad guy. He seems like a lot of fun, and I think everyone can get behind his caption:

Let's all just enjoy life and have no regrets :)

Colton Haynes and his haircutter, Angelo Evans, make a dreamy pair by the pool. There's a long history of that in Hollywood.
