Brandon Flynn, who plays Justin Foley on the controversial Netflix hit 13 Reasons Why, has come out in a passionate new Instagram post ...
The actor came out in the context of reacting to Australia's ongoing symbolic vote on the topic of same-sex marriage. He was inspired to post after seeing images of a plane skywriting the message VOTE NO in the skies over Sydney; a NO vote would be against marriage equality.
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. 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. Fuck that. We've been scared shitless 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. #fuckhate
