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.
