If you love Colton Haynes as much as we do, then you know he's made quite a few headlines in the last year over his anxiety, and more recently for coming out as gay!

Of course there was that whole beef with The Real O'Neals' Noah Galvin, but Haynes has continued to be an inspiration which is exactly why the Human Rights Campaign decided to honor the Arrow actor with their Visibility Award in Seattle on Saturday!

The studly actor continued by sharing:

"I'm making [the promise] to the next generation of lesbians and gay men, bisexuals and transgender youth and I hope my example will give them the confidence and hope to be who they are, as well."
