CW's The Flash has grown from having one Flash to several over the course of its three seasons. One particular speedster has taken to social media to announce something very personal to his fans, that being Wally West actor Keiynan Lonsdale.
The actor posted a lengthy message on social media, and it seems he's ready to reveal more personal details than he ever has, including some about his sexuality. Lonsdale said "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. 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 black & I feel kind of lost. I gotta take the next step & actually embrace who I am, which is pretty exciting. Not faking shit anymore, not apologizing for falling in love with people no matter their gender. I've become bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared...no one should feel like that about themselves, especially when there is so much good life to live. Ya know more & more I see so many young people being their best / truest selves, it's f****** inspiring...so what have I been waiting for!? Who knows. Everyone in their own time. I hope we can all learn to embrace who we are & not judge people who aren't exactly the same as us. The truth is we are all family, we're all one. Just love. Keiy. ❤
From the comments, it seems his fans are ecstatic for him. Both for being so open and also for not worrying about perception, instead focusing on what makes him happy.
